Summer cooking is all about quick and easy, and this recipe fits the bill. Assorted colored grapes are marinated in a sweet Moscato wine syrup enlivened with fresh mint. Arrange the ice-cold grapes in a pretty goblet (or a half melon), and dessert is served!
Place the wine and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves, then raise the heat to high. Boil the syrup for 2 minutes. Transfer the syrup to a bowl and let it cool for 5 minutes. Add the grapes and the mint. Toss gently to coat.
Refrigerate the fruit mixture for at least 4 hours or up to 8 hours.
To serve, divide the grapes among 4 goblets and add a tablespoon or two of the syrup to each serving. Garnish with mint, if you like. Serve cold.
