Greyhound Cocktail

This go-to summer cocktail is also a classic. First given its name in 1946 by Harper’s Magazine, the Greyhound cocktail, rumored to be a popular drink choice in Greyhound terminals, is made refreshing thanks to its main ingredient: grapefruit juice. The fresher the juice, the better.
