Mint, Cucumber & White Grape Refreshers

It’s safe to say that the warm weather is (finally!) here, and I have the perfect drink to enjoy. The combination of fresh mint, cool cucumber, and sweet white grapes makes this a really refreshing drink on a hot summer’s day. It’s fabulous to serve at a summer party and a much healthier alternative to cocktails and brunch mimosas!

Mint, Cucumber & White Grape Refreshers

 Ingredients 

A small handful of mint leaves

1 cup seedless white grapes (Champagne or Muscat grapes) juice

1 lime

1 teaspoon maple crystals

2-inch piece cucumber, thinly sliced About 1 cup super bubbly, very cold sparkling water (best if you make your own!) 

Directions 

Wash your grapes and shake them gently to get some of the water off. Put 1/4 cup grapes in a plastic bag with 1/2 teaspoon maple crystals and roll them around, coating all the grapes with the crystals. Stick them in the freezer for 1 hour. Roughly chop the mint leaves (should be fairly small) and mix with the maple crystals. Slice a grape in half and rub it around the rim of a pretty wine glass and then dip the rim in the minted sugar. Place in the freezer and let the glass chill for 5 to 10 minutes.

Wrap 3/4 cup of grapes in cheesecloth and squeeze the juice out into a small bowl. Pour the grape juice and lime juice into the chilled glass. Add the cucumber slices, along with the frozen grapes, the rest of the chopped mint, and the super bubbly soda water. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
