A twist on the traditional Greyhound, featuring mint-infused grapefruit juice and a splash of club soda.
I’ve never been a brunch boozer. I’m deathly allergic to celery, so Bloody Marys are out of the question, and I don’t love orange juice, so I tend to skip the mimosas as well. But recently, I discovered the Greyhound, my new go-to day drink.
Vodka, mint-infused grapefruit juice, simple syrup, club soda.
This recipe offers a twist on the traditional greyhound, featuring mint-infused grapefruit juice and a splash of club soda.

Strain grapefruit juice to remove mint springs.
Pour vodka over ice. Stir in grapefruit juice and simple syrup. Top with a splash of club soda and mint leaves.
