Fresh and slightly tart, this is not your traditionally saccharine-sweet cocktail. A twist on the classic vodka- and grapefruit-infused Greyhound drink, our Salty Dog Cocktail recipe makes the most of gin在线看不卡日本AV, grapefruit juice, and salt. The result? A cooler that’s nice and fruity, but anything but too sweet.

The Southern Living Test Kitchen crafted this version with fresh grapefruit juice, but bottled juice would be fine in a pinch. If you are freshly squeezing, we recommend using ruby red grapefruit for a beautiful, pink drink.

Traditionally, a Salty Dog is served straight up in a highball glass, but we think serving it over ice on a hot summer day在线看不卡日本AV is delightful. Finish your glass with a salted brim for a stylish look that balances flavor. More than a garnish, this briny salted boost is a great contrast to the drink’s zest and complements the bitterness of grapefruit and juniper taste of gin nicely.

在线看不卡日本AVServe at your next party for proof that grapefruit juice, gin, and salt can stir up some fun.
