3 Greyhound Cocktail Recipes

3 GREYHOUND COCKTAILS Recipe

A Greyhound is a cocktail consisting of grapefruit juice and vodka mixed and served over ice. This sounds a little bit boring for a cocktail. So here are 3 varieties of the Greyhound cocktail. And don`t forget the Salty Dog – also a modified Greyhound.


GREYHOUND COCKTAIL

STORY

Here ist the basic Greyhound recipe served in a collins glass.

INGREDIENTS

  • 60 ml / 2 oz. vodka
  • 120 ml / 4 oz. grapefruit juice

METHOD

  1. Pour the vodka and grapefruit juice into a collins glass filled with ice cubes.
  2. Stil well.
  3. Garnish with a slice of lemon or orange.


ITALIAN GREYHOUND COCKTAIL

The Italian Greyhound recipe is a variation of the Greyhound. We use less vodka and add Campari. This recipe is credited to Andrew Hildebrand (bartender, W Hotel, San Diego).

INGREDIENTS

  • 45 ml/ 1 ½ oz. vodka
  • 15 ml/ ½ oz. Campari
  • 120 ml / 4 oz. grapefruit juice

  2. Strain into a glass filled with ice.
  3. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary.


DALMATIAN COCKTAIL

STORY

The Dalmatian is a peppery variation on the Greyhound cocktail. Using homemade black pepper syrup, the Dalmation recipe gives the tangy grapefruit classic a bit of a kick, with the heat of the pepper syrup providing for a bold, lingering finish against the backdrop of the citrus.

INGREDIENTS

  • 60 ml / 2 oz. vodka
  • 15 ml/ ½ oz. black pepper syrup
  • 120 ml / 4 oz. grapefruit juice

METHOD

  1. Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Strain into a glass filled with ice.
  3. Garnish with a grapefruit twist.


NOTES

If the rim has been salted, the cocktail is instead called a Salty Dog.
