Recipe: The Golden Greyhound

For my first recipe, I present the Golden Greyhound:





This positively genius cocktail concoction puts a new twist on the classic Greyhound. Rather than ruby reds, we mixed freshly squeezed oro blancos and cocktail grapefruits (a.k.a., the frua) with vodka, garnished with a sugared rim and a slice of blood orange. It surely would not have been the same without the explosive produce from Sweet Tree (blood orange and oro blanco) and CalPoly Farms (frua). To amp up its golden glow, we served it over ice in gold-rimmed martini glasses. I've never felt so healthy about drinking vodka before. Many thanks to Nicole and Tamara for sharing in this with me ... and for helping me break in the new juicer! I see many, many juicy cocktails in our futures.

For some reason my kind-of cold Tango beer just isn't sounding as good right now...
