Grappamiel or Grapamiel or is a mixed alcoholic beverage popular in Uruguay containing grappa, spirits obtained from various grains plus honey and water.


The process includes distillate of the bagasse and lees of grapes and grains which is then mixed with natural honey, water and sugar. Grappamiel contains between 20% and 25% alcohol by volume.


It is enjoyed principally in bars served in a classic 25cl copa. Because it is a strong drink, it is popular with Uruguayan street musicians in the winter, and is traditionally drunk before taking the stage in the summer.[citation needed]

During hot weather, it is customary to take it in a tall 30cl glass with plenty of ice cubes.

In the past two decades, some cocktail bars have mixed the drink with a variety of flavors, for example:
