Thirsty Thursday: Jalapeño Infused Greyhound Spritzer


Feeling like adding a little kick to your summer cocktail? The Jalapeño infused Greyhound Spritzer is the perfect refreshing drink to enjoy while kicked back in a lounge chair, swinging on a hammock, or enjoying a late Sunday brunch with friends. Ahh summer, you are the greatest.


Jalapeño Simple Syrup

  • equal parts sugar and water (any amount, depending on how much you'd like to make)
  • fresh jalapeño strips, a few seeds added in for kick


  1. Combine the sugar, water and jalapeño strips in a saucepan. Warm over medium-low heat, stirring, until sugar dissolves completely. The longer it simmers on low, the more intense the flavor will become.
  2. Remove from heat and let cool completely. Pour into a glass jar, and store in the refrigerator.


  • 2 oz. of your favorite vodka
  • 4 oz. fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 2 oz. grapefruit flavored Perrier
  • 1/2 tbl. simple syrup (more or less, to taste)


  1. Add the ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake to combine. 
  2. Pour in your favorite lowball glassware. Add chilled grapefruit perrier. Top with skinny slice of jalapeño for garnish.
  3. Enjoy!
