Refreshing Grape Cocktail Recipes to try this summer season.

While grapes are popular for being used in making wines and brandy, it is a great ingredient to make cocktails too. You can either use grape juice or the raw fruit to get the sweet flavour in your cocktail. It’s a tricky flavour to add depending on what form you choose. But I have made things easier for you by curating a list of my top grapes cocktail recipes. 
Without further ado, here they are!
