Salty Dog Cocktail Recipe

Salty Dog Recipe

Salty Dog is a nice and refreshing drink. It belongs to a small group of very similar drinks with canine-related names. If you mix vodka or gin with grapefruit juice, you have a Greyhound. If you serve your Greyhound in a glass with a salted rim, you have a Salty Dog. If you replace vodka or gin with tequila, you have a Salty Chihuahua.



  1. Add salt to the glass rim by first rubbing a piece of grapefruit around the edge and then dipping it in salt.
  2. Fill the glass with ice.
  3. Add gin and grapefruit juice.
  4. Stir.
  5. Garnish with a slice of grapefruit.
