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?
