Written by MasterClass

Last updated: Nov 8, 2020 • 1 min read

The Sea Breeze is a classic, fruity vodka cocktail that a perfect refresher while lounging at the beach on a hot summer day. It has three ingredients—vodka, grapefruit juice, and cranberry juice—and can be served either stirred in the glass or shaken in a cocktail shaker, though stirred is slightly more common. It is traditionally served in a highball glass and garnished with a lime slice. A variation on the Sea Breeze is the Greyhound.
