Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Champagne or sparkling wine
  • 2 Ruby Red grapefruits, peeled and sectioned
  • 2 oranges, peeled and sectioned
  • Garnish: maraschino cherries with stems

Preparation

  1. 1. Cook sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat, tilting pan occasionally, 10 minutes or until caramel colored. Remove from heat, and gradually pour Champagne over sugar (mixture will bubble and seize). Let stand 5 minutes.
  2. 2. Cook mixture over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes or until sugar is dissolved (mixture will be syrupy). Remove from heat, and let cool 30 minutes.
  3. 3. Combine grapefruit and orange sections in a bowl. Pour Champagne mixture over fruit. Cover and chill 2 to 24 hours. Garnish, if desired.
  4. White Grape Winter Fruit Compote: Substitute white grape juice for Champagne. Proceed with recipe as directed.
