To make a sea breeze cocktail, mix vodka, cranberry juice and grapefruit juice together. You may use a slice of grapefruit or lime as a garnish. Preparation requires the aforementioned ingredients and takes about three minutes.
- Gather your ingredients
To make a sea breeze drink, you need 1 3/4 ounces of vodka, 3 ounces of cranberry juice, 1 ounce of grapefruit juice and ice cubes. You also need a highball glass to put the drink in.
- Mix the vodka and cranberry juice
Pour the vodka and cranberry juice into the highball glass with ice cubes. Stir the liquids together. The drink may also be shaken to produce a foamy surface. The sea breeze follows the classic cocktail principle of balancing strong with weak as well as sweet and sour.
- Add the grapefruit juice
Top the mixture of vodka and cranberry juice with the grapefruit juice. To make a bay breeze, which is also called a Hawaiian sea breeze, use pineapple juice instead of grapefruit juice. To make a Cape Codder drink, leave out the grapefruit juice from the mix. A salty dog drink is also made similarly, but it lacks the cranberry juice and has a salted rim.
- Garnish the drink
If desired, garnish the drink with a slice of grapefruit or a wedge of lime.
