A New Way To Do Grape

On a recent trip to my favorite hole-in-the-wall hot spot, Faherty’s, Joe (bartender extraordinaire) whipped out a brand spankin’ new vodka. As I said in a recent post, this is the time of year when I trade my Guinness for light lagers, and whiskey for vodkas. He had just gotten Smirnoff White Grape in stock, and was dying to try it himself. We saluted the coming of spring with a shot of the refreshing vodka, straight up. Delicious! I promptly ordered myself a double White Grape Vodka and Soda and enjoyed the hub-bub around the Elmwood Strip and Faherty’s fantastic patio.

Vodka and SodaI’ve made mention of this before, but I am truly a great fan of simple drinks. It doesn’t have to have 18 ingredients to be a success – in fact, I hope I never come upon a cocktail bearing 18 ingredients (and I’m sure my bartender friends feel the same way). This week, treat yourself to something light and cool, with a bit of bubbly, for spring.
