Orange twists, for garnish
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 20–30 min
1To make infused syrup: combine 4 oz of natural sugar and 4 oz of water over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer. Stir occasionally to avoid scorching the sugar. When the sugar has melted, add 3–4 tbsp of dried juniper berries that have been crushed or roughly chopped. Allow the mixture to continue simmering for an additional 20–30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool, then strain for use.
2Put three grapes, one of each color, on a short bamboo skewer and freeze until solid. Keep in the freezer until you’re ready to place on the finished drink.
3Cut a twist of orange peels for each drink you are making and set aside for later.
4Over ice, stir together 1.5 oz sparkling grape juice, 1.5 oz plain carbonated water, 0.5 oz juniper syrup, and a few dashes of orange bitters.
5Strain the mixture into a frozen cocktail glass.
6Remove the grape garnish from the freezer and add an orange twist to each one before resting it horizontally over the top of the glass. Enjoy!
