Salty Dog

The Salty Dog is a modification of the Greyhound, a popular pre-war cocktail that was served at Greyhound station cafes. Canned grapefruit juice had hit the American beverage market, allowing for tart fruity drinks that had only been possible with preserves and liqueurs. Fresh juice can be very inconsistent, but I recommend it for most drinks because it is often richer than the canned variety.
  • 1 1/2 oz. vodka
  • 3 oz. grapefruit juice
Shake vodka and grapefruit juice on ice and strain into a cocktail glass rimmed with sea salt.
