You’ll Be Dancing the Night to Earth, Wind, and Fire after a Few of These Grape and Glitter Cocktails

Yup, today is the day encapsulated in that iconic Earth, Wind, and Fire track. So, as a tribute, we developed a Saturday night cocktail recipe so you can (not) remember dancing in September. Oh, did we mention that it’s purple? And that it shimmers? *guy dancing in purple retro costume emoji*

Ba de ya!

This drink is as sweet as the song—no, really. The flavor of the grape juice masks the tequila, so be careful. It’s one of those cocktails that don’t taste like alcohol, making it easy to keep tipping back. If you want to add a little extra something, skewer a few grapes, roll it into the same sugar you put along the rim of your glass, then top it on there.
