Grapes of Wrath


Leo Robitschek ingeniously muddles Concord grapes with simple syrup to release their sweet, tangy, fragrant pulp. He pours the muddled grapes over a swizzle of mezcal, sherry and Barolo Chinato, a spiced fortified red wine that enhances the drink’s grapey flavor.

  1. 1 ounce mezcal
  2. 3/4 ounce fino sherry
  3. 3/4 ounce Barolo Chinato
  4. 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
  5. 1/2 ounce Vanilla Simple Syrup
  6. Crushed ice
  7. 15 Concord grapes
  8. 1/4 ounce Simple Syrup
  1. In a chilled highball glass, combine the mezcal, sherry, Barolo Chinato, lemon juice and Vanilla Simple Syrup. Fill the glass with crushed ice and mix by spinning a swizzle stick or bar spoon between your hands. In a mixing glass, muddle the grapes with the Simple Syrup and pour over the drink.
