Cocktail Recipe du Jour: The Greyhound

Posted on April 01, 2015 by Miriam Zelinsky

After long last, spring is finally here and Easter is just around the corner. Consider making a Greyhound or Salty Dog for your Easter brunch this Sunday. It's super easy and refreshing, plus grapefruits are good for you and loaded with vitamins. In addition, this drink is super versatile – you can substitute tequila, mezcal or gin.

As a bonus, consider pairing the cocktail with one of our Easter-appropriate ties like the "Foreplay," "Sweet Shades Bro" or "Spread Eagle" Whichever you choose, you'll definitely be in for some interesting brunch conversation with the family! 

Cheers and happy Easter!

What You'll Need:

3 oz. of grapefruit juice (we prefer fresh – if you're squeezing it yourself, make sure to use a strainer. You don't want the seeds getting in the way of enjoying your cocktail)
2 oz. of your favorite vodka
Salt (if you're turning it into a Salty Dog - we prefer Himalayan pink salt)
Bonus: use a fresh rosemary sprig for garnish.

What To Do:

1) If you're making a Salty Dog, run the rim of your glass through the grapefruit and then dip it into the salt.
2) Pour the grapefruit juice and vodka in a glass with ice and stir or pour them into a shaker with ice if you're serving it up.
3) Garnish with the rosemary and you're good to go!
