Sea Breeze

Drink: Sea Breeze

A classic little cocktail that might take you back to college. If you’re in college, then it might take you back to last night. Fresh, fun, and no-frills — the Sea Breeze is a light, tarty drink that, despite its name, is best enjoyed on, in, or at least in proximity to a Great Lake.


  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz grapefruit juice
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or simple syrup
  • 3 oz 100% unsweetened cranberry juice
  • 1 lime wedge


  1. In a glass, pour in the vodka, grapefruit juice and syrup and stir with a bar spoon. Add ice.
  2. Pour in the cranberry juice and squeeze the lime wedge on top. Taste and add additional syrup if you want it sweeter.
