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.
