"Simple recipe especially for those who love vodka. Adult beverage, not for the kiddies! I sometimes use a regular 8 ounce juice glass instead of a highball glass, it depends on the quantity of ice you like."

This is a great drink! I love grapefruits with salt on them (everyone laughs at me), so this drink is perfect for me. I do cut back on the salt a bit, though...1/4 tsp. is a bit much. Anyway, thanks! (By the way, I hope I don't mess up the rating by giving it one star on the kid rating--they're not supposed to like it cuz their not supposed to try it! LOL)
A good brunch drink. I was originally introduced to it as an alternative to the Bloody Mary. One thing though, the way I'm used to preparing it is with a the rim of the glass covered in coarse salt, a la a margarita and a cocktail straw. It lets the person drinking it control the amount of salt, in case they just want the fruit juice and liqour.
A salty dog has been a favorite. The way I have always had it was with vodka, and instead of putting the salt in the drink, you moisten the rim of the glass and dip it in salt. Refreshing!
I give this drink the full 5 stars plus!! My husband introduced me to this drink. I couldn't even taste the vodka, which came back to kick me in the butt. LOL.. I don't even like grapefruits, but this drink is awesome. I just have to take it a little slower from now on.
Simple yet so delicious. I had never had a salty dog with vodka. I used freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and I didn't measure the salt, just added enough to taste. I can't even taste the alcohol, dangerous.
Good, but I've been drinking salty dogs for a long time, and the salt needs to be on the rim of the glass...imo : )
I love salty dogs!! I am a regurlar drinker of these and this is a good receipe. I though use half grapefruit and half water because i think sometimes the grapefruit gets to over powering!
I won't laugh at you, Heather. I love grapefruit with salt. This is a great drink, salt and all.
