1 oz Gin (Martin Miller Westbourne)
1 oz Campari
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
3/4 oz Simple Syrup
4 Grapes (*)

Muddle the grapes, add the rest of the ingredients, and shake with ice. Double strain into a double old fashioned glass with ice (coupe without ice) and garnish with a grape and orange slice (grape only).
(*) Other recipes online have specified for green grapes, but I had red ones with white flesh on hand.
After my bar shift two Wednesdays ago, I opened the fridge when I got home and spotted grapes. This made me think of the Negroni variation the Enzoni despite that one generally calling for green grapes and these were red. The recipe in A Spot at the Bar did not specify though, and I set off to make this 2003 Milk & Honey creation by Vincenzo "Enzo" Errico. In the glass, the Enzoni showcased a grape and bitter orange aroma. Next, lemon and white grape notes on the sip flowed into gin and bitter orange flavors on the swallow with a fresh grape softness on the finish.

I tried subbing grapes out with 1/4oz of Verjus Blanc and really liked the result
