The Sea Breeze cocktail may be considered an easy vodka drink, but it can be slightly intimidating because of the use of grapefruit juice. However, need not worry if you’re using fresh squeezed grapefruit juice because the Sea Breeze recipe is elite and flavorful when using a fresh grapefruit rather than being too tart.

Canned/Bottled grapefruit tends to be tart and bitter and that will make the sea breeze cocktail recipe tart and better. We’re not teaching you how to make a sea breeze that’s bitter, our how to is all about making a GOOD Sea Breeze cocktail. No no, a GREAT Sea Breeze cocktail!

The cranberry gives it the color, a bit of sweet and a bit of tart while the grapefruit drives the citrus into the sea breeze without adding a large load of tart flavor. The vodka in the sea breeze cocktail recipe is the “killer app” of cocktail essence, without the vodka this is just juice (or a “mocktail”, which is also fine).

You’ll find vodka doesn’t impact the flavor profile and allows the citrus and cranberries define the flavor of the vodka sea breeze. You can do it with gin as well, but the gin may impact the nuances of flavor.

Sea Breeze
1.5 oz vodka
1.5 oz Cranberry Juice
4 oz Cranberry Juice
Lime Wedge Garnish

I find a sea breeze much more interesting than a bay breeze or other such cocktail because of the combination of flavors but there are times where my mood isn’t looking for sea breeze flavors–but we’ve got plenty of other easy vodka cocktails to fit your mood (maybe a mule?)
