This version of a Sea Breeze by David Moo, the owner of Quarter Bar in Brooklyn, is a mashup of the old and new: gin, equal-parts house-made grenadine and fresh ruby-red grapefruit juice.

This recipe originally appeared as part of “The Inside Story of the Sea Breeze Cocktail.”


  • 2 oz Gordon’s gin
  • 1/4 oz Homemade grenadine*
  • 3 oz Fresh pink grapefruit juice, to top


  1. In a highball glass, add the gin and grenadine and stir.

  2. Add ice and top with pink grapefruit juice.

  3. *Homemade grenadine: Add equal-parts pomegranate juice and sugar into a saucepan on low heat and simmer until sugar dissolves. Strain into a jar and seal tightly with lid. Will keep in refrigerator for one month.
