Greyhound Cocktail

Leave a comment

Brief Background

Kay just discovered this cocktail—it’s a delightful warm-summer-day drink that may even rival the ubiquitous Gin & Tonic! The Greyhound origins date back to about 1930, but took off in popularity fifteen years later. It wasn’t until 1945 when Harper’s Magazine officially named the cocktail  “greyhound” given its popularity at Greyhound bus terminals…

Ingredients

Makes Two Cocktails

Two Florida Pink or Ruby Red Grapefruits. Natalie’s Gourmet Grapefruit Juice is an excellent substitute.

One Fresh Whole Lime

Vermont Barr Hill Gin—the raw honey infused gin makes the perfectly balanced cocktail.

Add Maple syrup or simple syrup if too tart.

Steps

Robustly squeeze grapefruit halves using a larger vintage glass citrus juicer and pour juice through strainer into Pyrex measuring cup.

Delicately squeeze each lime half using same juicer, then pour through strainer into the same measuring cup.

Generously fill two Old Fashioned glasses with ice.

Fill glasses with ⅓ Barr Hill Gin and ⅔ freshly squeezed grapefruit and lime juice.

Garnish with lime wheel, wedge or decorative grapefruit peel.

Now, comfortably slide back in your Adirondack chairs and enjoy this amazing 1930s vintage cocktail.
