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:
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.
