Wednesday Mixology: Strawberry Greyhound Cocktail….

This time last week, I was preparing to leave to sunny Palm Springs for some R&R. Today, I am staring at a grey, wet day filled with a long overdue bathroom install at a client’s condo. So it’s not that illogical that I am dreaming about what cocktail I will be having tonight as The Partner and I catch up over our day. I thought in tribute to Palm Springs and to try to extend the warm vacation fuzzies as long as possible, I would whip up a batch of Strawberry Greyhounds, a twist on the traditional greyhound cocktail…..

Strawberry Greyhound

Instructions:
1. Place whole strawberries in bottom of pitcher and muddle with wooden spoon.

2. Pour in vodka and grapefruit juice into pitcher and stir lightly.
