Spiced (and Spiked) Concord Grape Punch

A bone-chilling celebration calls for cocktails of an equally eerie sort, like this spiced (and spiked) Concord Grape Punch.


  • 1 gallon Concord grape juice
  • 8 cardamom pods
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
  • 1 1/3 cups Danny Meyer's Simple Syrup
  • 7 cups vodka (optional)
  • Ice cubes
  • Concord grapes, for garnish


  1. Step 1

    Combine grape juice and spices in a large pot. Bring just to a simmer, then remove from heat and let stand, covered, 20 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve (discard solids), and chill. To serve, combine with simple syrup and vodka, if using. Serve over ice in a tall glass, and garnish with grapes.
