The 12 Days of Speakeasy: Day 2

Not unlike holiday traditions, some cocktail recipes are often considered sacred. Nostalgia tells us there are some things that should never change. But lately we’ve been wondering, after 50 years of using the same green bean casserole recipe, isn’t it time for an update?

When it comes to mixers, nothing beats fresh squeezed juice. A classic Greyhound is one of our favorite cocktails. With this next recipe we’re putting a new twist on an old favorite.

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

The Italian Greyhound

2 ounces Speakeasy vodka

3 ounces San Pellegrino Pompelmo

Garnish with grapefruit wedge (optional)

Fill a glass with ice. Add vodka and top off with San Pellegrino Pompelmo. Stir and enjoy. 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.
