Many of us have preserved for posterity the tart and tangy taste of Concord grape in our sensory memory. And what a pleasant memory it is. Drinking the purple, fabric-staining juice in our youth was always a pleasure and something of an adventure. Rest assured that time has done nothing to diminish its ability to entice the imagination. Considering how fervently mixologists search for new flavors to feature in their cocktails, it's curious that the noble grape has been conspicuously absent behind American bars. Fortunately, the drought is finally over.

Welcome SKYY Infusions All Natural Grape, a top-shelf vodka imbued with the succulent essence of grapes. Its vivacious character is created using a proprietary process that infuses all natural grape flavors into smooth, premium vodka. At the end of the proprietary process, the infusion is bottled at 70 proof and thus there's no biting edge or alcohol burn.

SKYY Infusions Grape is an engaging vodka guaranteed to revive and rejuvenate your taste buds. The silky lightweight spirit is crystal clear without a trace of color. The wafting aroma of Concord grapes is thoroughly captivating and confirms you're in for a special treat. Its entry immediately fills the mouth with a balanced, long-lasting array of puckery and semisweet grape flavors. The kid in us would describe it as tasting purple—and the kid would be right. To call the overall experience delightful would be to sell it short.

Here's a fresh, vital spirit that's raring to have some fun. SKYY Infusions Grape mixes beautifully with rum and other flavored vodkas, as well as just about every juice and drink mix stocked behind the bar. Better yet, add a splash of grape to a Mojito, Margarita or specialty Martini. It can elevate cocktails to new heights.

So crack open a bottle and start eliciting some smiles.
