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
- 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.
- Fill the glass with the crushed ice and pour the vodka over it.
- Top up with grapefruit until the desired spirit strength is reached.
- Stir to mix and drink with a straw.
Note: I found the Grapefruit juice at Woolworths or manual juicing can also be used.
