A Bay Breeze is the sister cocktail to the more popular Sea Breeze. It’s made with pineapple juice instead of grapefruit juice.
You may be wondering to yourself, what is a bay breeze? You’re probably familiar with the more popular sea breeze. A drink made with vodka, cranberry juice, and grapefruit juices.
I am not a fan of grapefruit and many who take statins can’t have anything grapefruit. A traditional bay breeze is one of my favorite cocktails. It’s made with vodka, cranberry, and pineapple juice.
I decided to mix it up a bit and make a sparkling bay breeze using sparkling cranberry juice. Am I ever glad I did because I now have a new favorite sparkling drink.
This sparkling bay breeze may even take you on a mini-vacation. Enjoy one on a beautiful day sitting outside and dream of where you’d rather be.
Maybe somewhere in the tropics overlooking crystal blue-green waters with warm breezes blowing. Wait…that’s where I want to be! Where would you go?

That sounds delicious! I can’t find the sparkling cranberry juice. I may have to do cranberry and club soda to make this.
I’m not sure I’ve had sparkling cranberry but this sounds good!

I have everything in my house to make this right now. Looks like I know what I’m having after the kids go to bed!
This drink looks so delicious and refreshing!
I am loving the sound of this cocktail! It make me want to be somewhere tropical, sitting by the pool or ocean!

I love your change-up here. It’s a great to come up with a twist on a classic and your addition of sparkling juice is just perfect. And your picture makes me long for summer again.
I will be treating myself to one of these after I cook Thanksgiving dinner next week!
