The Greyhound | Hump Day Treat

I simply could not resist the perfectly pink grapefruits at the market this week. A favorite breakfast of mine is a piece of toast, half a grapefruit with a little honey, & a cup of tea. I figured I could stretch my luscious fruit find into a lovely cocktail as well.

The Greyhound is a breeze to put together & the fresh squeezed juice makes it feel oh-so Summer-y.

So let’s get to it! You’ll need…

  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 6 oz Grapefruit Juice (fresh squeezed please)
  • ½ oz Simple Syrup (Combine equal parts water & sugar, heat until dissolved. Keeps in the fridge for a week)
  • Jigger or other measuring device
  • Rocks glass filled with ice
  • Cocktail stirrer or spoon
  • Slices or wedges of grapefruit for garnish
