The Greyhound Cocktail Popsicle

This is a craft cocktail popsicle based on the classic Greyhound.  Gin and juice are all you need.  Or substitute vodka if that’s your thing.  A bit of sugar tames the grapefruit.  Minimal ingredients, simple to make, and refreshing. Perfect for when an adult treat is needed on warm lazy days.
