"Greyhound" & Crystal Head Collide On A Rainy Day
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!
Greyhound+
1 1/5 oz Crystal Head Vodka
3 oz Pink Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Squirt or Fresca
Glass: Highball
Garnish: Grapefruit wedge

Crystal Head was voted #1?! The bottle seems so gimmicky that I figured it would be much lower. I like the color of this cocktail. Pretty pink.

Go get some fur @noonmarez. Especially since you live in the cold of Washington.

I have always wanted Crystal Head Vodka if only because I'm obsessed with the packaging. That's right, I'm that easy kind of consumer that marketing always always works on.

Label whore with fashion here. Not ashamed here. I was shocked too that this was #1. Nowhere in sight was Absolut. Didn't even make the list.
