Description

The Salty Dog is a refreshing combination of grapefruit juice and gin with a salted rim. Perfect for summer, even if you can’t get at the beach!


Scale

Ingredients

  • Coarse salt
  • Ice cubes
  • 4 ounces gin
  • 6 ounces fresh grapefruit juice (freshly squeezed and strained is best)
  • Grapefruit wedges, to garnish

Instructions

  1. Chill two highball glasses and pour salt on a small plate or bowl.
  2. Moisten the rims of the two chilled glasses (with grapefruit juice or water) and gently dip rims into salt to coat.
  3. Fill glasses with ice cubes. Pour 2 ounces gin into each glass, and top each with 3 ounces grapefruit juice. Garnish with small grapefruit wedge and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Notes

Can also be stirred, or prepared shaken over ice – I prefer the pour over method simply because it looks prettier.
