This is the time of year that we are busy sampling grapes in the field, always seeking to find that perfect moment for harvest. We froze a few of these grapes to enjoy later. A fun thing to do is use the frozen grapes in place of ice in a cocktail – and no better cocktail than a Sidewinder original, the Last Call. This uses both our Sauvignon blanc and the grappa that we make in house from our grape pomace (pressings).
- 4 oz Occasio Sauvignon Blanc (may be purchased here)
- ½ oz Sidewinder Grappa (may be purchased here)
- ½ oz grapefruit juice (fresh squeezed)
- 2 sprigs thyme
- dash of simple syrup (optional)
Combine all ingredients into a mixing tin. Shake and strain into a wine glass. Add ice, or as we do, frozen sauvignon blanc grapes. Garnish with a wedge or wheel of grapefruit and a sprig of thyme.
