This used to be my favorite drink! Haven't heard anyone mention a Salty Dog in over twenty years. For a great tasting change, use ruby red grapefruit juice, not quite as tart and really refreshing!

Classic! I love vodka and I love grapfruit juice, but never had it in a salt-rimmed glass - I reserved that just for my margaritas. This was great!

Good, but I've always made Salty Dogs with gin.

This is my drink of choice. I love these you can also use gin instead of vodka, but vodka is better.
