This cocktail is a variation of the Sea Breeze, which is an International Bar Tender’s Association Official Cocktail. The twist is that it uses pineapple juice instead of grapefruit for a sweeter taste. It is similar to the Cape Codder which is a mix of Vodka and cranberry juice, and a close relative to Sex on the Beach cocktail which contains orange juice and schnapps.

Basically, the Bay Breeze is another cocktail that evokes salty air, the sound of crashing waves hitting the rocks, and maybe a spot of sailing.

The original Cape Codder was developed and promoted by the cranberry growers’ cooperative which sold its fruit to Ocean Spray. This was just after the Second World War when cranberries weren’t particularly popular and hard to market outside of the Christmas season. It was originally called the Red Devil when it appeared in 1945, but experienced a change of name in the early 1960s when Cape Cod emerged as an exclusive retreat for politicians, actors, and wealthy aristocrats.

You can also experiment with several variations on the Bay Breeze. A Tropical Bay Breeze uses Coconut Rum instead of Vodka, and a Passionfruit Bay Breeze adds a spoonful of passionfruit puree to the mix. Before you get too carried away, however, you should try the original. You’ll find it refreshing, with the tang of the cranberry juice cutting the pineapple’s sweetness for a grown-up summer cocktail.

Here’s the recipe for a Bay Breeze:


  • 60ml Vodka
  • 180ml Cranberry Juice
  • 45ml Pineapple Juice
  • Lime wedge to garnish


  1. Fill a tall glass with ice
  2. Add all ingredients
  3. Stir gently
  4. Garnish with a wedge of lime
