No, I've seen a Sea Breeze. It's not the same drink. Same exact ingredients, but it's not the same drink. There's a different attitude about a Madras than there is a Sea Breeze. Mister Cairo would have ordered a Sea Breeze. Sam Spade would have ordered a Madras.

Okay. Sam Spade would have ordered straight whiskey, but you know what I mean.

all wrong

A madras is not a mystery nor does it constitute a good bartender, and a sea breeze is crushed ice, cranberry juice and absolut shaken with GRAPEFRUIT juice layered on top.

Correct Researcher 194932! There are three variations on the theme, Madras, Sea Breeze, and Bay Breeze. The last involving pineapple juice instead of either OJ or horrid grapefruit.

I haven't heard the name Cape Cod in a bar in a long time. Most people just order a vodka cran with lime. No class, I swear.
