Description
Commemorating the yearly wine crush, the name for this slightly earthy palate-cleanser was inspired by the hilly orchard landscape of the island of Sicily—home, of course, to the Corleone family.

Ingredients
1 1/2 ounces gin
1/2 ounce grappa
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup
2 dashes orange bitters (preferably Regan's No.6)
5 white grapes (such as Thompson Seedless)
Garnish: sugar-coated white grape*
Preparation
Place grapes in a cocktail shaker and press with a muddler. Add gin, grappa, lemon juice, simple 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.

*To make sugar-coated white grapes, roll grapes in egg white and dust heavily with superfine sugar. Refrigerate to harden and serve.
