The Dalmatian Cocktail is a variation on the Vodka Greyhound, with the addition of a black-pepper simple syrup.

 A peppery variation on the Vodka Greyhound, the Dalmation Cocktail uses homemade black pepper syrup to give the fresh grapefruit classic a bit of a kick. The heat of the pepper syrup leaves a spicy, lingering finish after the tangy citrus flavors taper away. This cocktail can be enjoyed in winter, when citrus fruits are ripe, and the pepper gives the drink a warming kick. Bonus; vitamin C from the grapefruit can boost the immune system.
