A Salty Dog Cocktail is simple to make, bright and fresh, and versatile. Make it with vodka or gin, whatever floats your boat. I used vodka.
Grapefruit juice + vodka or gin = a Greyhound
Grapefruit juice + vodka or gin + a salted rim = a Salty Dog
Get it? Cute, right?
These cocktails are super refreshing, full of bright flavor, and so simple to put together.
I enjoyed one in the middle of the afternoon after taking pictures, but imagine it would be a lovely brunch cocktail, as well.
