Sea Breeze

A Sea Breeze is a cocktail containing vodka with cranberry juice and grapefruit juice.[1] The cocktail is usually consumed during summer months. The drink may be shaken in order to create a foamy surface.[1] It is considered an IBA Official Cocktail.[1]

The drink follows the classic cocktail principle of balancing strong (alcohol) with weak (fruit juice) and sweet and sour.[1][2]

A Bay Breeze, or a Hawaiian Sea Breeze, is similar to a Sea Breeze except for the substitution of pineapple juice for grapefruit juice.[2][3] It is also closely related to the Cape Codder (which lacks the grapefruit juice) and the Salty Dog (which lacks the cranberry juice and is made with a salted rim).[4]
