A Sea Breeze cocktail is a refreshing drink that is perfect for lounging by the pool or relaxing at the beach on a hot summer day. With just three easy-to-find ingredients, this drink is both simple and delicious.
The Sea Breeze Cocktail was first introduced in the 1920s, initially made with gin and grenadine. However, over time, its recipe underwent several changes, and it became a crowd favorite in the 70s, where people started making it with vodka, cranberry and grapefruit juice. It is still a very popular choice of drink today, especially in the summer months.
Sea Breeze Cocktail Ingredients
Vodka: Simply use your favorite vodka that you would enjoy drinking on its own.
Cranberry Juice: Use cranberry cocktail, like Ocean Spray that contains various fruit juices in it.
Grapefruit juice: Store bought grapefruit juice works great. Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice is an option too, if you prefer a fresher taste. You can use ruby grapefruit juice, but it is a bit sweeter and doesn’t have enough tartness.
Lime: Fresh lime cut into wedge or wheel to garnish
Ice: Serve cocktail with ice.
