Boozy Fruity Goodness


You probably should not fruit and drive.

My bloggy friend Tanya over at Chica Andaluza posted about a wine based Boozy Christmas Fruit about a week ago.

I’ve mulled the idea over and decided to give something similar a go.

I’m not a fan of fruit cake.

Is it wrong to admit that? I’ve tried many versions and none of them entice me.

Something about the candied fruits puts me off. However, plump brandy filled fruit baked into a bread or cake is another thing indeed.

I am soaking my fruit in brandy, in anticipation of making a boozy New Years Eve party treat.

Here’s what I used…..

into the canning jar place….

  • 1/4 cup of golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup of (regular) raisins
  • 1/2 cup of dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup of dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup of dried figs
  • enough brandy (or rum) to cover the fruit
  • place the lid on the jar and set it in a cool, dark place for at least 3 days (or more)


I’ll post about what I am using this boozy fruit in next week.



  1. I’m not a fan of fruitcake either, but this definitely so!! I have a few different jar seeping away and getting tipsy all thru the holidays!! There are endless uses for the fruit – love it!!

  2. Wow – so glad you gave it a go with your own special twist! Thanks for the lovely mention and I´m looking forward to seeing what you do with t. You´re right – not for drivers 😦

  3. That’s it. I need to do this!

  4. Oh, can’t wait to see what you make!
    🙂 Mandy
