15 Nov Drinks Anyone? Add the Grape Muddle to Your Holiday Bar
Liquor. Hard Alcohol. Mixed drinks. Cocktails. Whatever you call it, I typically don’t drink it. Until recently.
I sipped one of the best drinks I’d ever tasted last week at Park Grill in Chicago. The bar staff at Park Grill mixed, crushed and swirled grapes, mint leaves, lime, Welch’s 100% Grape Juice and Champagne and a few other ingredients (see recipe below) into what’s known as a Muddle. It was delicious and refreshing. After I’d helped myself to 2 of these concoctions, I switched to water made a mental note to grab the recipe.
Here’s a strong recommendations to include this on your holiday bar this year–and, what the heck, just put it on your favorites list year round.
- In a martini shaker, add 2 grapes, 3 mint leaves, 2 limes and ½ oz simple syrup
- Add ice and pour in 1 oz. Grey Goose and 1 oz of 100% Welch’s Grape Juice (can use white grape juice if preferred)
- Mix/shake and pour into an old fashioned glass
- Top with Champagne
I’m a proud member of the Welch’s Health and Wellness Advisory Panel.
