When concord grapes start showing up in the market I am reminded of a transfusion. Originally, at least in my experience, this drink was a blend of grape juice and ginger ale. Nowadays I reach for a blend of concord grape juice and spicy ginger ale. For me this is the drink of fall. The foxy grape flavor is balanced by the sharp edge of the soda. I first learned of this drink as a young fore caddy. They served it spiked with vodka to the golfers at the halfway house and we got our own non-alcoholic version in the back of the building. At the time I had no idea the adults were drinking it with alcohol. I didn't care, then or now. What matters most is how refreshing and flavorful it is.
