What to do with "to sweet" juice

So I was at the store and we were in the juice isle DD got what she thought was apple juice and put it in the cart. Looked like it to me so we finished shopping and headed home.
Turns out it is white grape juice, and no one likes it. Ha! it's REALLY sweet, like sickly sweet. I Spose I could just water it down but was wondering if you ladies had any different ideas of how I could use it up(64oz ) you all are always so inventive

That's happened to me too! I cut it with water 1/2 and 1/2 and put it in a pitcher in the fridge and gave it a good shake/stir/swirl before pouring. Mixed together and cold somehow tasted better than just mixing them together right before drinking it!

Re: What to do with "to sweet" juice

I always cut my juice about 1/2 and 1/2 with water, so that's definitely an option. You can put in a little bit of lemon juice too to take the edge off the sweetness. I like the pp's idea for popsicles too!

I use white grape juice concentrate as a sweetener, so I'd likely set it to boil some to get rid of excess water, freeze it in an ice cube tray, and use it in place of honey in recipes.

Re: What to do with "to sweet" juice

We use white grape juice for our smoothies. Frozen fruit + white grape juice = delish!
