Summer’s Not Over Mocktails with Frozen Grape Garnish

2 Servings


For the syrup:
2 Tbsp juniper berries
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
For the cocktail:
3 oz sparkling grape juice
3 oz plain carbonated water
1oz juniper syrup
A few dashes of orange bitters
4 Orange twists, garnish
4 Jasmine Vineyards green, red, and black grapes, frozen, garnish
1. Put three grapes, one of each color, on a short bamboo skewer and freeze until solid. Keep in the freezer until you’re ready to place on the finished drink
2. Cut a few twists of orange peel and set aside for later. Cut one for each drink you are making.
3. Over ice, stir together 1.5 oz sparkling grape juice, 1.5 oz plain carbonated water, 0.5 oz juniper syrup*, and a few dashes of orange bitters.
4. Strain the mixture into a frozen coupe glass
5. Remove the grape garnish from the freezer and add an orange twist to each one before resting it horizontally over the top of the glass
*to make infused syrup: combine 4 oz. of natural sugar and 4 oz. of water over med-high heat and bring to a simmer. Stir occasionally to avoid scorching the sugar. When the sugar has melted, add 3-4 tablespoons of dried juniper berries that have been crushed or roughly chopped to the liquid. Allow the mixture to continue simmering for an additional 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool, then strain for use.
