The 12 Days of Speakeasy: Day 11

When was the last time you ordered a Sea Breeze? It’s a delicious cocktail with a terrible name. Something about it conjures up images of blue haired ladies, lounging in Boca Raton, ordering one too many Sea Breezes from that extremely patient cabana boy they’ve been flirting with all day. It’s a bit awkward. which is the same way I feel when I order one, kind of awkward.

Here’s a holiday twist on the original. Hopefully this namesake evokes images of Santa’s sleight  ride instead of his retirement plans.

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love poured for me a:

Holiday Breeze

2 ounces Speakeasy vodka

3 ounces fresh grapefruit juice

1 1/2 ounces pomegranate juice

Place ice in a rocks glass. Add all of the ingredients and stir. Serves one.

Pink Drink!

When most people think of Easter they envision plastic grass, egg hunts and seersucker pants. For us, Easter is a fantastic excuse to enjoy a guilt free breakfast cocktail. Here’s a great alternative to the predictable (yet delicious) mimosa.

The Greyhound (Michelle’s favorite cocktail ever)

2 ounces vodka

4 ounces fresh squeezed pink grapefruit juice

Fresh squeezed grapefruit is the key to making a successful Greyhound. Don’t skimp and buy canned juice. Pour vodka over ice. Add grapefruit juice and stir. Serves one, straw optional.
