Bon Appétit (September 2015)
Do you have fond memories of it as a kid? Neither of us drank it all that much, but it still strikes a nostalgic chord. All of those candy-colored, sugary-sweet soft drinks -- grape, orange, cherry, lemon-lime -- take us back to slip-n-slides, Blockbuster nights at home, and grade-school pizza parties.
In absolutely the best way.
So there was a hint of childhood memories as we made the base for this sweet, grapey cocktail.
But there are a couple things about this drink that make it decidedly not for kids. The vodka, obviously.
But also? Vinegar.
