Greyhound CocktailPrint This
- 6-8 ounces fresh pink grapefruit juice, depending on the size of your glass, one grapefruit
- 1 ounce rosemary simple syrup, see note*
- 1 ounce shot vodka
- 5-6 ice cubes
- sprig rosemary, plus more for simple syrup
- sugar rimmed glass, directions below
Start by rimming your glass with sugar. Egg whites work the best but if you don’t want to use them water will work too. Place either one egg white or a small amount of water into a shallow bowl that is large enough to fit the rim of the glass.
Set up a small plate with a thin coating of granulated sugar. Dip just the very top of the glass into the liquid.
Place the glass onto the sugar, turning it if needed to coat the rim.
Place your ice cubes into the glass.
Add the grapefruit juice, simple syrup, and vodka. Stir to combine.
Add the sprig of rosemary for the garnish.
Rosemary simple syrup is one part sugar to 2 parts water. Example is ½ cup sugar placed in a saucepan with one cup water. Heat over high heat until the sugar is dissolved. Remove this from the heat and add two sprigs of fresh rosemary. Let it cool and steep for 30 minutes.
