Found in the cookbook From the Lands of Figs and Olives. I don't know if this is supposed to be prepared with 100% white grape juice or 100% concord grape juice. I tested with unsweetened organic concord grape juice. You also have the option of making your own grape juice: Easy Concord Grape Juice. If your juice is sweetened, omit the sugar in the recipe. An ideal introduction to orange blossom water if you've never tasted it before.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 quart concord grape juice (or white grape juice)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (I used honey) or 2 tablespoons honey, to taste (I used honey)
  • 2 tablespoons orange blossom water (do not omit)
  • 14 teaspoon cinnamon, to taste (original recipe specified 1 teaspoon) or 12 small whole cinnamon stick
  • ice cube
  • of fresh mint, for garnish


  1. Mix together everything except for the ice cubes and mint.
  2. Chill and when ready to serve pour the juice over ice cubes and garnish with fresh mint leaves.

Well, that was interesting! I chose this recipe because I had a partial bottle of grape juice in the fridge and didn't know what to do with it. I did like the drink - the orange water really changes it up, and my only complaint is that it was too sweet. I used honey, but only a touch because grape juice is already way sweet. If I do have this again, I'll probably try to lighten it up a little bit with some soda water to tone it down. Thanks for posting a quite unusual recipe! Made for ZWT9.

Very yummy but sweet. But it was perfect for my son. He doesn't like grape juice a lot. But with these additions, he likes it. Yesterday he asked me to do another one for him. Thanks Cookgirl. Made for ZWT9

YUM! The honey had a hard time blending in so I was thinking (uhoh!) could heat some of the juice, add honey & stir until dissolved. Add the cinnamon stick to that & let it steep a bit before adding the whole but back to the rest of the juice & adding the orange flower water. But, I don't think the additional sweetener is really needed. I accidentally added way more ground cinnamon which turned out great & the recommended amount of orange flower water I could barely detect. (because of too much cinnamon?) so I added more. YUMMM. I sipped & sipped...finished the whole quart in a day. ;) Made for ZWT9, Mike & the Appliance Killers.
