Instructions:

  • Now, let’s go through the step-by-step process of preparing a Greyhound Mocktail:

Prepare the Fresh Juice:

  • Begin by cutting the grapefruits in half. Using a citrus juicer, extract the juice from the grapefruits until you have approximately 1 ½ cups of fresh grapefruit juice.
  • Next, juice the two limes to obtain approximately 2 tablespoons of lime juice. Ensure that you strain the juice to remove any seeds or pulp.

Mix the Citrus Juices:

  • In a cocktail shaker or a mixing container, combine the fresh grapefruit juice and lime juice.

Sweeten with Simple Syrup:

  • Add simple syrup to the citrus juice mixture to sweeten the mocktail to your taste. Start with 2-3 tablespoons of simple syrup and adjust according to your preference for sweetness.

Shake (optional):

  • If using a cocktail shaker, fill it with ice and the citrus juice mixture. Shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds to chill and froth the mixture.

Assemble the Mocktail:

  • Fill highball glasses with ice cubes.
  • Pour the shaken (or stirred) citrus juice mixture over the ice, filling each glass about two-thirds full.

Add Sparkling Water:

  • Top off each glass with sparkling water, adding a gentle effervescence to the mocktail.

Garnish:

  • For a decorative touch, garnish each Greyhound Mocktail with a thin grapefruit slice or a twist of grapefruit peel.

Serve:

  • Serve immediately and enjoy the crisp and tangy flavors of this delightful Greyhound Mocktail.
