The Twelve Grapes of Luck

The twelve grapes in this punch are inspired by the Spanish tradition of eating one grape for every bell strike at midnight on New Year’s Eve to have good luck in the new year. A fun alternative is to give each guest a punch glass with 12 grapes of their own and instructions to wait until midnight to eat them (but to drink the punch at will!)

  • 1 blood orange
  • 12 grapes, red or white
  • 16 oz New Deal Vodka
  • 50 oz blood-orange juice, chilled
  • 36 oz natural orange soda, such as San Pellegrino Aranciata, chilled
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 5 dashes bitters

Slice 1 blood orange into wheels and freeze, also freezing the 12 grapes. You can fill ice cube trays with orange juice to freeze, too, if you wish.

To make punch, stir New Deal Vodka, blood orange juice, soda, lime juice, and bitters into a punch bowl. Before serving, add frozen orange slices and grapes. Add ice cubes as needed to keep chilled.
