    Serves: 4


    • juice of 1 large pink grapefruit
    • 250ml green melon, cubed
    • 30ml castor sugar
    • 100ml melon vodka, frozen
    • 2 grapefruit or melon segments, to garnish

    A variation on the classic Greyhound that uses vodka and grapefruit juice.

    • This drink easily lends itself to multiplication. To serve 5, you’ll need the juice of 3 fresh grapefruit (about 375ml), 600ml liquidised melon, 75ml castor sugar and 300ml melon vodka. Combine as with the recipe above and serve from a jug.
    • If you can’t find melon vodka, try lemon vodka.
    • If melons are out of season use melon juice.
