Just because it's raining out is no excuse to frump around the house in your pj's all day. If you're looking for comfort and a pick-me-up, then grab the #1-voted Vodka for 2015, Crystal Skull, and pour yourself a Greyhound cocktail. But if you call yourself a friend of mine, then you'll have already text to meet at Hotel Viceroy. Hanz, one of my favorite bartenders there, takes this cocktail to the next level by adding clear effervescent soda, like Squirt to the Greyhound, hence the "+" added to the moniker.
Don't let me see you tromp around the Viceroy in pedestrian clothing. Up the ante in gray neutrals. Get some pink in there ladies. Some shine and reflective pieces will elevate it from looking dowdy. Oh! And another thing...get your damn eyebrows and lashes done!
1 1/5 oz Crystal Head Vodka
3 oz Pink Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Squirt or Fresca

*Standard Greyhound recipes do not include the 1/2 oz of soda. Omit this if you want a traditional Greyhound.
