From popsicles and playdates to cocktails and conversation, grape juice can be a delightfully unexpected addition to any gathering you host.
Having a crew of kids over? Treat them to easy-peasy Purple Dirt popsicles filled with silly surprises. Start by loading each popsicle mold with gummy worms. Then carefully pour Welch's grape juice into the molds, freeze for several hours and serve up the smiles. Worried about the kids creating a purple mess? Substitute white grape juice and you've got Worm Farm pops.
For your adult guests, try transforming concord grape juice into a refreshing mixed drink known as The Transfusion. This deliciously classic cocktail is simple to make and serve. Just add two-and-a-half ounces of vodka, two ounces of concord grape juice and a tablespoon of lime juice to an ice-filled glass. Top with four ounces of ginger ale and garnish with dark cocktail cherries and lime. For a mocktail version, mix equal parts of sparkling grape juice and ginger ale and garnish.
