Day 158

5 shots out of 5

First off I would like to wish a very Happy Birthday to our good friend Adam!  Adam's favorite cocktail is a Greyhound, so I promised him that I would make one on his birthday, so tonight's cocktail is for you Adam!!

I gave tonight's cocktail 5 shots out of 5.  I have never had a greyhound before, but now that I do really enjoy grapefruit juice in my cocktails, I have been dying to try this one for a few months now........just needed to wait until tonight to make it.  I found many variations for vodka to grapefruit juice online, so I basically went with somewhere in the middle.  This is a very refreshing cocktail and one that is super easy to make.  I know I will be enjoying many more of theses in my future!  Thank You Adam for letting me make this cocktail on your special day!

Here is the recipe for a Greyhound:

  • 1 shot vodka
  • 3 shots grapefruit juice
In a short glass, add ice, and all ingredients above.  Stir it up well and enjoy!!

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to your birthday Adam!  See you soon!!
