How do you make a Greyhound? Well that depends on whether you like a consistent taste or erratic flavors. If you want to know what you’re getting every time, use store bought grapefruit juice. If you’re OK with leaving it up to Mother Nature, go with your own freshly squeezed juice. Sometimes it will be sour or slightly bitter or incredibly sweet. But the unpredictable outcome of a freshly made Greyhound is what makes this drink so interesting and predictably good.
Start by washing, halfing, and squeezing two large grapefruits. For us this produced about 7 ounces of juice which was enough for our two cocktails, but depending on the size and juiciness of your grapefruit, you may get more or less.
