I had never tried fresh grape juice till a couple of years ago even though I have seen it on many menus before. I was afraid of how it will taste. And I was never really a big fan of eating grapes either. I despise the weird after taste and feeling it leaves in your mouth. However I was determined to find a solution so I started playing around with the idea of a grape cocktail. Presenting to you my perfected recipe!
All you need is:
- 250g of red grapes
- 2 tablespoons of Sugar
- 500 ml of Water
- Lemon juice
- 50 ml of semi-sweet White Wine
Cut the grapes in half and take out the seeds. I must say that I pick red grapes simply because I love the colour of the drink in the end. You can use any kind you like! Control the sweetness accordingly. Put the grapes, sugar and water in a blender and blend it. Strain the juice to get rid of the skin. Pour it into cocktail mixer along with the lemon juice and white wine and give it a good shake. Serve it with ice and lemon wedge.
