The Greyhound cocktail is a refreshingly straightforward classic known for its crisp and tangy flavor. This no-fuss drink typically consists of just two key ingredients: vodka and freshly squeezed grapefruit juice.

The result is a clean and invigorating blend, where the neutral base of vodka allows the vibrant citrus notes of grapefruit to shine through.

Served over ice and garnished with a twist of grapefruit peel, the Greyhound is a go-to choice for those who prefer a simple yet delightful cocktail that's both zesty and thirst-quenching, making it a perfect sip for warm, sunny days.
