Tito's Greyhound

Like much of what happens in Austin, Texas, a Tito's Greyhound is a cocktail with a unique appeal. What could be simpler? Take an award-winning, hand crafted vodka and douse it generously with fresh grapefruit juice. The two ingredients combine to create a drink that is tart and refreshing, while retaining a sophisticated edge. Garnish it with a sprig of rosemary if you're feeling rakish or a simple wedge of grapefruit if the night calls for classic accessories.


  • 1.5 oz. Tito's Vodka
  • Fresh grapefruit (use bottled in a pinch, but we both know there's no substitute for fresh)


  1. Pour the vodka over ice in a cocktail class. If you're so inclined, salt the rim of the glass to create a Salty Dog.
  2. Top off with grapefruit juice. 
  3. Garnish with a sprig rosemary.
