The Sea Breeze is a cocktail that conjures images of sandy beaches and gentle ocean waves with its crisp blend of vodka, cranberry juice, and grapefruit juice. 

This beverage belongs to the family of “breeze” cocktails, characterised by their use of cranberry juice mixed with another fruit juice and a spirit base.

With its simple composition and refreshing taste, this Sea Breeze recipe offers a moreish balance of tartness and sweetness, making it an excellent choice for summer gatherings.


  • 2 oz or 60 ml Vodka
  • 3 oz or 90 ml Cranberry juice
  • 1 oz or 30 ml Grapefruit juice
  • Ice cubes
  • Lime wedge (for garnish)


  1. Prep: Fill a highball glass with ice cubes.
  2. Pour: Add vodka, cranberry and grapefruit juices.
  3. Combine: Stir gently to mix.
  4. Garnish: A lime wedge.


Interestingly, the Sea Breeze cocktail gained popularity in the 1970s and 1980s as part of a push by cranberry growers to expand the market for cranberry juice.

This drink’s vibrant colour gradient, resembling a sunset over the ocean, adds to its appeal, ensuring a visually stunning addition to any cocktail menu.


Consider it an upgrade to the classic Screwdriver.
