Grapesickle

Frozen grapes are so delicious!  They take on an almost sorbet-like texture after an hour or two in the freezer.  The skewers were inspired by another blogger, rosemarried.  When I saw them I knew it had to be the garnish for an icy, summery cocktail.

  • purple grapes
  • 2 oz. vodka
  • 4 oz. 100% grape juice
  • squeeze of lime
  • 1 oz. club soda

 

First make your grape skewers by threading grapes on a skewer and freezing for at least one hour.  Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.  Pour in the vodka, grape juice, and lime and shake well.  Pour into a chilled cocktail glass and top with club soda. Place a frozen grape skewer in the glass.  One further benefit to the frozen grapes: they keep the drink nice and cold!

  1. Katherine’s going to love this one. She wanted to make a PB&J martini this weekend and well, how many words are there for disaster? She saw the idea on Facebook. Anyway, love the grape skewer and the recipe.

Tastes just like an adult pbj! Can’t wait to see upcoming recipes. Leanne
