Transfusion

Transfusion

The Transfusion is a golf club staple, but even if you’ve never picked up a golf club, this recipe makes for a uniquely delicious way to transition into cold-weather cocktails. If you don’t happen to have Concord grapes on hand, red or black grapes can be substituted, and Concord grape juice can be found at most major grocers. For a spirit-free version, just leave out the vodka!
