Commemorating the yearly wine crush, the name for this drink was inspired by the hilly orchard landscape of the island of Sicily, home the Corleone family.
- 1 ½ oz gin
- ½ oz grappa
- ¾ oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
- ½ oz simple syrup
- 2 dashes orange bitters (preferably Regan's No.6)
- 5 white grapes (such as Thompson Seedless)
- Garnish: sugar-coated white grape*
*To make sugar-coated white grapes, roll grapes in egg white and dust heavily with superfine sugar. Refrigerate to harden and serve.
Place grapes in a cocktail shaker and press with a muddler. Add gin, grappa, lemon juice, simply syrup, and bitters; fill shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Make a thin slice in a sugar-coated grape and set it on the lip of the glass.
