Rosemary Greyhound

With spring here and Memorial Day coming up, I thought I’d share a spring cocktail recipe. Grapefruits are still in season and they are really good right now. So today I’m sharing a recipe for a Rosemary Greyhound.

Easy and delicious Rosemary Greyhound Cocktail recipe

What’s a Greyhound cocktail? It is traditionally made with either vodka or gin and grapefruit juice. Yep, that’s it! it is a very simple cocktail recipe. Delaney loves gin, like really loves it. So, I decided to make this recipe with gin, but you could also use vodka. And my herb garden is going off right now, which is amazing. It’s one of the things I love about living in my new house, I can finally grow herbs! In my old condo, it was very dark because there were trees all around, so I literally couldn’t grow anything. But, now at the new house I am a serious plant lady!

This easy Rosemary Greyhound recipe is perfect for spring, but would also be great for Easter or Valentine’s Day next year as it has a naturally light pink color which is just so pretty. This cocktail would also be really pretty in a punch bowl if you’re planning an outdoor BBQ this summer. Get the recipe below for my Rosemary Greyhound.

Why Organic

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
