This crushed black grape bourbon drink recipe is so good, you will want to serve these up at your next party. If you love fancy drinks as I do, you will want to check out all of the Fancy Drink Recipes on my blog :-).
It has been a long week and I am ready to unwind and enjoy the weekend. School starts next week and it seems like there is so much prep that goes into getting the kids ready. They need school clothes, notebooks, pencils, and highlighter pens in every color in the rainbow. (I am not kidding!!) Time to break out the Vitamix and make a delicious fruity bourbon cocktail.
I totally need a break!
My favorite libations always include fresh fruit. I am not into really sweet drinks and I love that including fresh fruit in a cocktail doesn’t mean the drink has to be super sweet. The black grapes give this drink a fresh taste that is so good on a hot day! I have found for me, the best way to puree fruits for a cocktail is with a Vitamix. The Vitamix helps you enjoy whole foods in so many ways from smoothies to hot soup.
The star of this bourbon drink are the black grapes. They are packed full of nutrition and add a sweetness that just blends perfectly with the bourbon. Their polyphenols may even help keep your heart healthy. (How is that for justification to try this drink?)
Another delicious Vitamix fruity bourbon cocktail recipe to try is this Tropical White Peach Cocktail. It is full of juicy ripe white peaches.
Just in case you feel like a little tequila, this Tequila with Lemonade with Cilantro Cocktail is perfect to drink by the pool. I would never have thought cilantro and lemonade would work together, but I was proven wrong after eating at a new favorite restaurant. Curious?
