The Bay Breeze is a simple mixed drink that brings a little pineapple into the popular mix of vodka and cranberry found in the Cape Codder. It is an easy, delicious, and refreshing drink that can be mixed up in a minute and is a popular recipe that every bartender should know.

Like the other 'duos' and 'trios' that mix vodka with fruit juice, the Bay Breeze is a simple highball recipe. It requires your favorite vodka and equal parts of cranberry and pineapple juices to fill the glass. Despite its simplicity, it packs a flavorful punch and is a fun everyday drink.

This drink is also sometimes called a Hawaiian Sea Breeze or a Downeaster.
