Sea Breeze

A Sea Breeze is made with Vodka, Grapefruit Juice and Cranberry Juice. This tart and fruity cocktail is a bar menu staple, however, it is often enjoyed at home or at cocktail parties, rather than at a bar or restaurant.

Lots of people insist on making a Sea Breeze with fresh Grapefruit juice only. And while it will taste better with fresh Grapefruit juice, you also have to factor in geography. If you live in Florida where Grapefruits are grown, it makes sense. However, if you are importing Grapefruits, you probably aren’t getting the freshest fruit, plus you are probably paying a lot of money for that fruit. Thus, I’d use canned, bottled or boxed grapefruit juice.
