Drink of the Week: Greyhound (Vodka and Grapefruit Juice)

What with citrus being in season right now; and drinking a lovely cocktail on a sunny day always being in season, it's no wonder I came to this positively refreshing bev.

Mixed up on a flawless Southern California Sunday, it quenches the palate, tingles the taste buds and reminds a person that life is good. (The inclusion of the vodka certainly doesn't hurt in the matter...)

If you too have forgotten the thrill of sipping fresh squeezed grapefruit juice paired with ice cold vodka, due to one too many poor imitations, this will be a revelation.

Nothing flat, bottled or canned in the taste of this elixir, only that captured sunshine spark we can all use this time of year.

And bonus! Grapefruit is a great source of vitamin C, so if you feel a cold coming on, mix one of these up in a hurry!

Try it, mes petits pamplemousses, and taste the joy.

1 ounce vodka
3 ounces fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
Sparkling water

Fill a tall glass with ice. Add the vodka and then the grapefruit juice. Top off the glass with sparkling water, stir gently with a long spoon and serve.

Serves one.

Can also be made as a punch.

Please, always drink responsibly.

Pubs with bad reputations are to be banned from serving beer in glasses, the U.K. Home Secretary has announced. "High risk" pubs and nightclubs where violence is a problem will be forced to use plastic replacements, as part of a wide-ranging plan to reduce the level of violence in Britain.

If they refuse, councils will remove their licence. "There is an expectation that such premises will move to a safer alternative to glass, such as polycarbonate." The plan comes amid concern about drunken violence in the streets. –Birmingham Mail.net

The average American consumer made 69 trips to the grocery store in 2004 down from 72 in 2003 and from 92 trips in 1995.


Goodness that sounds delicious. And just the thing to fight a cold!
Sounds perfect ....want one...right now! :)
