The Autumn Passion
My first experiment with the Concord-grape infused vodka I made. To make Concord-grape infused vodka, drop a large bunch of grapes into a Mason jar. Fill with vodka, and screw the top on. Let sit for about a week, until the vodka is pleasingly purple, and remove the grapes.
For the lavendar syrup, below, it's just simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water, stirred over medium heat until the sugar dissolves) with a cheesecloth packed of dried lavendar added to it while it cooled, to infuse it with lavendar flavor.
2 oz Concord grape-infused vodka
1/2 oz lavendar syrup
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
And isn't it a fun fuschia color?
