This is kind of an aquired taste, but I love it. I salt the rim of the glass instead of adding it to the drink.

This Is Not Good. I prefer a Gin And Tonic.

OK, I know what I made was not "salty"....but it was good. Using the recipe here, I skipped the salt, and added in 3/4 oz triple sec. Smooths out the grapefruit bitterness, and is very refreshing.

Simple and delicious.

I never needed any salt with mine. This has been my favorite drink since before I found out it was called a "Salty Dog" - I just asked for a gin & grapefruit.

A drink that can make gin taste good? YES!

Honey, let me be your salty dog! One of my all time favorite drinks. Rarely add the salt but it's good either way.
