Really good & fresh, felt healthy tasting (even though I am drinking BA-HOOZE)! Easy to make, thanks!

My go to drink is a salty dog. I use vodka and search out restaurants that fresh squeeze grapefruit. Never add salt to the actual drink! It's a salted rim!

LOL!!I pulled off a couple of shopping bags worth of grapefruits just yesterday(being a grape grower I think we need to change the name of grapefruit!!), squeezed them and made vodka "Salty Dogs". Yummo!

Love, love, love this cocktail! So simple. I used 1/2 grapefruit, a teaspoon af simple syrup, and a jigger of gin. I salted the rim with coarse salt. Perfect! I think I'll have a double next time! I enjoy the taste of gin, but the drink works equally well with vodka. The grapefruit hides the alcohol taste, so be careful not to drink too much!

This is a great drink. I make mine with vodka instead.

Move over, Rover, there's a Salty Dog in town! This recipe alone gives one reason to keep gin in the freezer and grapefruit in the fruit bowl all summer long. Cheers.

After buying tons of grapefruit from a co-worker's son for a high school fundraiser, I tried this recipe and my oh my, am I glad I did! I used vodka instead of gin just because that's what I had on hand, and added a packet of Splenda for a little sweetness. Very refreshing!

This drink is great but try not to add too much salt. Also, DO NOT USE A PLASTIC CUP. The acid + the salt = a very messed up cup.
