♥ The Greyhound

Friday, July 29, 2011

Continuing right along with my I don't cook cocktail series, I give you a summer drink with an extra burst of flavor, the lollipop greyhound.  Most of the time I’m a vodka soda kind of girl but every once in a while I like to switch up my drink of choice, and nothing is better than fresh squeezed fruit in a cocktail.  

The Greyhound cocktail is a great drink for brunch and it is sweet and refreshing.  Pink-colored lollipops give it an extra burst of flavor.  It's an inner-child twist to a distinctly grown-up beverage.  
 Simply pour vodka (or gin) and grapefruit juice into a sugar rimmed glass filled with ice cubes. 
Use the lollipops as stirrers, and serve.
 What’s your favorite drink for summer?

I'm a big fan of this drink. Sign me up for as many as I can handle without being sloppy! (That's, like, one.)

Gin and grapefruit juice is one of my favorite. This puts a nice little twist on it!!
I must say that during the summer [and let's face it, all year round] my favorites are margaritas and mimosas. Yummm.

Great idea for my housewarming party this summer! I love grapefruit juice so this is my kind of drink. My other favorite is champagne and fresh mushed watermelon. Anything with fresh fruit juice is great.

Happy weekend!
