Concord Grape Rickey Recipe

By Seth Fera-Schanes

I was looking for some Fall inspired drink recipes and reached out to a few restaurants around the city.  One of the drink recipes I received was an updated version of the classic Rickey.  All the standard ingredients are included (Gin, lime and club soda) but with the addition of a Concord Grape puree.  These grapes become available in the Fall and are found at farmers markets throughout the city.


Concord Grape Rickey:

Serving size – 1

Preparation times – 5 minutes

1.5 oz    London Dry Gin

1.5 oz    Concord Grape Puree (reduced concord grapes in sugar and spices)

1 oz        Lime

3 oz        Club Soda

Serve in a highball glass with a big mint sprig and pickled Concord grapes as a garnish.
