Concord Grape Thyme Bandit

Makes a bunch of drinks


1 cup concord grapes
1 cup turbinado sugar
1 cup water
¼ cup fresh thyme leaves
2 teaspoons ginger, chopped fine
Pear infused vodka
Fresh lime juice
Concord grapes and thyme leaves for garnish


In a sauce pan combine and mix together the concord grapes, sugar, water, thyme leaves and ginger and bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat and allow to simmer for about 8 minutes.  Take of the heat and cool.  Process in a blender until smooth and place in a squeeze bottle or jar with pouring spout.  In a shaker filled with ice place 3 ounces of pear vodka, 2 ounces of Concord grape syrup, and one ounce of lime juice. Shake vigorously and strain into a martini style or low ball glass.  Garnish with a whole concord grape and a few floating thyme leaves.
