Scuppernong Float




One thing I love about shopping at local farmers markets is that you get to discover local foods, that may be new to you. It was in North Carolina that I first had muscadine grapes, these grapes are native to the area and grow really well. They can be eaten, made into a juice, a wine or jellies. I confess to eat they are a tad sweet for my liking and they have tough skins. So a juice is a good way to go.

 The grapes grow well in the south, there are a few varieties one being the Scuppernong  found growing wild in northeastern North Caroline in 1810 by Dr. Calvin Jones Float. They are rich in antioxidants and are truly a taste of the American South. 



I figured why not make a float with the juice. It worked well -)

Ingredients:

  • scuppernong juice
  • a scoop of vanilla ice cream 
  • tonic water to give it some fizz


Method:


  1. combine all of the above and enjoy
