St. Germain & Muddled Grapes

It’s not like me to do a post about alcoholic beverages.  That’s because I don’t typically make any that are worth talking about.

I’m the type of girl that thinks all drinks are gross.  They’re all too strong tasting to me.  The typical girly drinks are too sweet.  I’m just very hard to please in this department.

Recently, I’ve been catching onto the craft beer obsession that’s taking over Philly.  I am so glad I finally don’t think beer is disgusting.

As of last year, I also don’t think wine is disgusting.  Is this me growing up?

And finally, after being introduced to a fabulous cocktail bar in the city… I now LOVE cocktails.

Inspired by a drink I had at one of my favorite neighborhood spots (SoWe), I decided to try out this cocktail at home.  I’m obsessed.  It’s SOOOOOO GOOD!

St. Germain & Muddled Grapes

Ingredients:

1 shot Vodka

1 shot St. Germain

1/2 cup Fresh Red Grapes

1/2 can Diet Sprite

Directions:

1.  Muddle the grapes into a cocktail shaker with the vodka and St. Germain.  Mash until most of the grapes are broken up.  Strain into a glass filled with ice, removing grape solids.  

2.  Top with diet sprite or club soda.  Enjoy!

If you don’t have a muddling stick, you can try to use a wooden spoon, it just might take longer, so be patient!

CHEERS!
