Summer Entertaining: Creating a Cruise Cocktail

Since returning from our weekend getaway to Nassau with Carnival Cruise Line, I found myself missing the ocean breeze, the smell of the sea and, of course, enjoying some quality time with Fred while sipping on a fruity cocktail. So, I decided to bring the flavors of the sea back home with us by re-creating my favorite cocktail from the cruise, an aptly named Sea Breeze cocktail to enjoy here at home on our back patio.

Fortunately for us, they are just as easy to whip up as they are to enjoy! You just need these simple ingredients:

Sea Breeze Cocktail Recipe:

Vodka, 4 oz

Cranberry Juice, 8 oz

Grapefruit Juice, 4 oz

Ice Cubes

Garnish with lime or pineapple
*Serves four.
