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, housemade grenadine and freshly squeezed grapefruit juice.

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

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces Gordon’s gin
  • 1/4 ounce homemade grenadine*
  • 3 ounces fresh pink grapefruit juice, to top

Steps

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

  2. Add ice and top with pink grapefruit juice.

*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.
