The greyhound is a simple, refreshing cocktail made with grapefruit juice and a little vodka or gin. The vodka version is smoother, while the gin version has more complex flavors.
Unlike most greyhound recipes, we recommend adding a 1/2 ounce of simple syrup because it helps balance the tartness in the grapefruit juice. The most important thing for making a good greyhound is to use the best grapefruit juice you can lay your hands on.
- 2 oz vodka
- 4 oz grapefruit juice
- 1/2 oz simple syrup
- Add a few ice cubes to a highball glass, pour in the gin, simple syrup, and grapefruit juice. Stir, serve, drink.
