Sea Breeze Cocktail Recipe

Among the collection of vodka and juice drinks called sea breezes, this cocktail is a favorite. It contains a hint of tart grapefruit juice to enhance the taste of the Cape Codder (aka vodka-cranberry). A delicious, spiked fruit punch that’s a refreshing delight to drink on a hot summer day sip and you’ll quickly understand why it has remained one of the most popular drinks at bars for years.

To add more excitement, pick a vodka that is flavored. A good base for a vodka is almost any of the fruit vodkas, particularly strawberry and citrus. This can also be shaken and strained over fresh ice, which adds a bit more air to the drink, making it more appealing especially on hot days. By maintaining the proportions and scaling up each ingredient, you can turn this into a punch. Combine 11 ounces (1 1/3 cups) vodka, 30 ounces (3 3/4 cups) cranberry juice, and 10 ounces (1 1/4 cups) grapefruit juice in a 60-ounce pitcher or pour over ice in a glass. Stir and adjust to taste.


  • A quality vodka that is low on price that you do not mind drinking straight is a good choice.
  • When cranberry season is right, it is easier to make cranberry juice than other fruit juices, but making fresh cranberry juice is a little more difficult.
