How Do You Make A Sea Breeze Cocktail?

First, pour the vodka and cranberry juice into a highball glass with your desired amount of ice cubes. Stir well, and top off with the grapefruit juice. Add your garnishes and you’re done!
You can also make this drink in a pitcher for crowd or party.
Bay Breeze (AKA Hawaiian Sea Breeze): Substitute pineapple juice for the grapefruit juice.
Cape Codder: Leave out the grapefruit juice.
Salty Dog: Leave out the cranberry juice, and dip the rim of the glass in salt.
Another fun variation is to add sparkling white wine or seltzer for a fizzy drink.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Kind Of Vodka Should I Use? You can use any kind of vodka in this sea breeze cocktail. You’ll be mixing the vodka with sweet juices so the quality is less important. It’s fine to get a less expensive brand, as you’ll hardly be able to tell the difference!
Should I Use Fresh or Bottled Grapefruit Juice? I like using freshly squeezed for a tarter drink. If you prefer a sweeter drink, or don’t often have grapefruits in the house feel free to substitute bottled.

Sea Breeze Origin

The sea breeze was created in the 1960s in response to the growing popularity of vodka. It was originally crafted as a promotion by the Ocean Spray Company. In addition, the Seagram Company used the sea breeze in the 1960s to promote its aged Ancient Golden Gin.
