AVEC Italian Greyhound
A modern date update to the cocktail named after a bus
Imagine waiting for a bus and drinking a cocktail. Two things that don't seem to go together today – but in 1945, that was the reason the "greyhound" got its name. Harper’s Magazine coined the name after a drink made with gin and (grapefruit) juice at Post House, the once a popular bus terminal restaurant chain.
In any case, we are no longer drinking cocktails at bus stations and dream of vacations on planes abroad.
So, we wanted to update this classic AVEC a twist. One that includes a little global inspiration in Campari, the Italian liqueur.
