Grape Infusion

What to do with all those grapes being harvested off the vines?  Paul planted grapes and constructed a beautiful arbor years ago after we were in Napa Valley.  It seemed like a good solution to a corner lot and kids cutting through our yard after school.  Since that time, we had a child and our yard standards were lowered...and lowered...and lowered again.  Not just blaming Eleanor..but just a change in priorities over the years.  However, the arbor still stands and the grapes have matured so we get quite a crop every year at the end of the summer.  We're never quite sure what to do with them...a few for eating depending on the sweetness; however, we're a family that really enjoys seedless grapes.  Maybe I should be more of a purist and not admit that, but it's the truth!

Anyway, this year Paul decided to put the grapes in with some vodka for this infusion.  The grapes and the vodka and the pretty bottle are in the refrigerator just waiting.  Waiting for what?  I'm not sure what he'll concoct out of this, but stay tuned.....
