Weekend Cocktail: The Greyhound

Make & filter your fresh grapefruit juice


It’s snowing in greater Boston today and we’re stuck at home in our fair city of Cambridge again this weekend. With the MBTA shut down, what better way to celebrate than with a citrus cocktail?!

The past month or two it seems to me that oranges and grapefruits have been on sale on a weekly basis. Today’s cocktail, the Greyhound, is a simple cocktail variation on the classic screwdriver that will take advantage of those grapefruit sales. All it requires is ice, vodka, and grapefruit juice. This recipe comes from Mittie Hellmich’s “Ultimate Bar Book: The Comprehensive Guide to Over 1,000 Cocktails.”

  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 5-6 ounces of fresh grapefruit juice
  • Pour into an ice-filled highball glass and stir
Enjoy your Greyhound.
