Very refreshing! I've seen several different variations of this cocktail, and they're all good but this one is my favorite. This drink has an interesting history. It was first created in the 1920s during the Prohibition era (I won't tell if you won't). With a big cranberry promotion in the 1950s, the recipe changed to include a bit of cranberry juice. It gained in popularity and was often in the list of the top 10 most popular drinks. But it didn't reach its height in popularity until the 1970s. For a Hawaiian Sea Breeze, just substitute the grapefruit juice with pineapple juice.
