Bay Breeze Recipe

This recipe is a cinch to make.

We love Bay Breezes! Think of it as the tropical version of the traditional Cape Codder. It’s no secret that Barbara’s favorite drink is a Cape Codder.  She likes it them simple with just Cranberry and Vodka but most often she squeezes lime juice into them or adds Limeade for a bigger lit of lime. She has even been know to add sliced jalapenos for a spicy kick!

Just remember, one part pineapple juice, one part vodka, and two parts cranberry juice.

If you can remember that ratio, then you can make this cocktail in any size for any amount of guests.

Ingredients for Bay Breeze Cocktail

  • Cranberry juice
  • Pineapple juice

Barbara was in charge of bringing a cocktail to a fun night with friends recently.  That day, she had found this cool vintage lemonade pitcher with a seal-proof lid. She decided to try a new cocktail. It just so happened that Aldi (Barbara’s favorite store, hands down) had had pineapple juice that week, and she had grabbed a carton.

Next thing you know, Barbara was whipping up a large batch of Bay Breeze for friends.
