This Greyhound Cocktail Recipe is only two simple ingredients, vodka, and grapefruit juice! It’s like the grown-up version of the screwdrivers you drank way too many of in college! This invigorating beverage is thirst-quenchingly tart and refreshing while full of flavor.
The combination of vodka + Grapefruit juice is a classic that is perfect to enjoy for all occasions, whether a quiet evening at home, brunch with friends, or a night out.
Greyhound Drink Recipe
With only two simple ingredients, the Greyhound drink recipe is quick and foolproof to create. Combine 2 ounces vodka and 6 ounces grapefruit juice into a tumbler with a large ice cube, serve and enjoy!
What is a Greyhound Drink
The first recipe of the Greyhound Cocktail appeared in 1930 in a cocktail book printed by the legendary London hotel, The Savoy. It has been a classic every since! While gin was originally the preferred spirit in the mixed drink, as vodka became more popular in the US after world War II, it swiftly succeeded the gin.
How to Serve
The Greyhound drink is served in a tumbler or tall glass with a large ice cube. With only two ingredients, the Greyhound cocktail is a great candidate to mix things up and experiment. Try salting the rim to create a Salty Dog or adding a grapefruit wedge as a garnish!
We like to double or triple the recipe in a bigger pitcher so there is enough to go around.
