I think spring just might be upon us. It was a sunny 79'f in Austin today. Just in time for spring break and South by Southwest. I think a celebratory cocktail is in order. In fact, I think its time for a cold and refreshing cocktail.
I'm thinking a greyhound. Its a refreshing and simple cocktail made with fresh ruby red grapefruit juice and Tito's (Austin's favorite Vodka), no I don't get paid to endorse Tito's, but I should. Plus, I just happen to have a grapefruit on hand from my beloved CSA. What else should I do with it? Eat it? That might just be tragic when there is vodka in the pantry.
Happy March, Happy Daylight Savings, Happy South by Southwest, Happy St. Patrick's Day, Happy Spring and oh yeah, I turn 30 this month. Welcome March!
4 ounces of grapefruit juice (Texas Ruby Red is best)
2 ounce of vodka
lemon slice for garnish
Combine ingredients in a tall glass filled with ice and stir. Garnish with a lemon.
