Salty Dog


A special drink for grapefruit lovers, this is the Salty Dog. Combining grapefruit with vodka this recipe is super simple. Although historically a Gin drink, it is now more frequently made with vodka, experiment with both spirits, each will result in different flavours but both equally delicious.


  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp coarse salt
  • lemon half
  • crushed ice
  • 2 measures vodka
  • grapefruit juice
  1. Mix the sugar and salt in a saucer. Rub the rim of a chilled glass with the lemon half, then roll it into the sugar and salt mix to frost.
  2. Fill the glass with the crushed ice and pour the vodka over it.
  3. Top up with grapefruit until the desired spirit strength is reached.
  4. Stir to mix and drink with a straw.


Note: I found the Grapefruit juice at Woolworths or manual juicing can also be used.
