Vita Vini

The Vita Vini cocktail is a drink that was invented in the early 20th century, long before cocktails were popular. The recipe for this drink has been found in a book called "Drinks of All Kinds," published in 1902 by William Boothby. It is a drink that contains equal parts of lychee juice and lemon juice, five red seedless grapes, Ecco domani pinot grigio, and sugar. It can be served either shaken or stirred with ice, and then strained into an old-fashioned glass to enjoy it.
