Joel and I had a few friends over on Sunday to watch the closing ceremonies of the winter Olympics, and while we were brainstorming ways to imbibe Sochi-style, we got those catchy Chumbawumba lyrics stuck in our heads: “He drinks a whiskey drink. He drinks a vodka drink. He drinks a cider drink. He drinks a lager drink.” We went with the least complicated vodka cocktail we could find (by searching for “Russian vodka drinks” on Google) — this beautifully simple and subtle crushed grape cocktail.
- 1 1/2 ounces vodka
- 6 red grapes
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- club soda
Fill a low-ball glass with ice. Set aside.
Muddle the grapes with brown sugar in a shaker. Add the vodka and shake. Pour the liquid over the ice. Top with a splash of club soda.
