This drink was concocted in order to find an alcoholic use for my favorite juice. As it turns out, the syrupy, pure grape flavor of Concords blends perfectly with aromatic gin and a dash of orange bitters.

What to buy: Look for pure, unsweetened Concord grape juice. We especially like R.W. Knudsen’s Just Juice.

While any dry gin is suitable, this cocktail is exceptionally tasty when made with Distillery No. 209 or Hendrick’s.

Instructions

Pour the gin, grape juice, and bitters into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously until well chilled, then strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with skewered grapes, if desired.
