A long, refreshing cocktail with a hint of herbaceous bitterness. This is based on the 1980s favourite the Sea Breeze. That version of the Sea Breeze is vodka, cranberry and grapefruit, and supposedly the result of a marketing push by Ocean Spray, the cranberry growers’ collective. The 53 Breeze is less breezy and easy going, with quite a bit more character.
