classic cocktails: seabreeze

Having originated in the 1920’s I’m pretty sure the Seabreeze is the “original girly drink”. It has morphed a over the years from it’s conception during the day of prohibition as gin and grenadine cocktail to the recipe we are familiar with now. I love that this cocktail is more sour than sweet, but I still found that if you’re planning on having more than 2 you may want to cut the tartness with a little club soda or lemon-lime soda. Cheers!
