Mix together a few simple ingredients to create a refreshing spritzer. Grapes, mint and prosecco mixed with grape juice makes a delicious drink that comes together easily. The grapes and mint are muddled together to release their fresh flavors so that they will bind better with the alcohol. You want to be sure not to over-muddle the grapes and mint, as this will lead to a bitter taste. If you don't have a muddler on-hand, you can use a wooden spoon instead. Frozen grapes make a beautiful garnish for this drink. Make sure to freeze extra grapes if you plan on making cocktails for a crowd.
