Sea Breeze

This drink takes me back to the 90's. A simple tropical cocktail needs only a few fruits juices that, when combined, give the illusion that you didn't just get this from the cash bar at your little cousin's wedding. Crack open a can of grapefruit juice and a can of cranberry (canberry?) and mix with vodka in a highball glass.

To upscale this drink some, use fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and Absolut Ruby Red vodka. This makes for a juicier and far more complex cocktail that still keeps its 40-proof strength vodka. Absolut flavored vodkas are as strong as plain vodka.
  • 2 oz. vodka (Absolut Ruby Red used)
  • 3 oz. grapefruit juice
  • 3 oz. cranberry juice
  • grapfruit slice
Build drink in a highball glass with vodka and ice then top with equal parts of both juices and stir. Garnish with a grapefruit slice.
