Quick Grape Spritzer
- 1 bunch red seedless grapes, stemmed and washed (about 1 pound)
- 1 bunch white seedless grapes, stemmed and washed (about 1 pound)
- 1 quart chilled grape juice
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 16 ounces vodka
- 2 cups chilled seltzer, club soda, or naturally sparkling water
I get wonderful local grape juices at my market at the same stand where I buy my grapes. I especially like white grape juice for this recipe but anything will work! For vodka, I love Ciroc because it matches the grape flavor profile of the drink but love the "classics" like Stoli just as much.
Add the smashed grape to a large pitcher and pour in the grape juice and honey. Stir in about 16 ounces of vodka. Fill glasses about 1/2 full with the grape juice mixture and top with a splash of seltzer. Drop and few frozen grapes into each glass for a festive garnish that doubles as an ice cube!
