Grapes of Wrath
- TOTAL TIME: 5 MIN

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.
- 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.
