My go to drink is a salty dog. I use vodka and search out restaurants that fresh squeeze grapefruit. Never add salt to the actual drink! It's a salted rim! Read More

Love love love this cocktail! So simple. I used 1/2 grapefruit a teaspoon af simple syrup and a jigger of gin. I salted the rim with coarse salt. Perfect! I think I'll have a double next time! I enjoy the taste of gin but the drink works equally well with vodka. The grapefruit hides the alcohol taste so be careful not to drink too much! Read More

This drink is great but try not to add too much salt. Also DO NOT USE A PLASTIC CUP. The acid the salt = a very messed up cup. Read More

After buying tons of grapefruit from a co-worker's son for a high school fundraiser I tried this recipe and my oh my am I glad I did! I used vodka instead of gin just because that's what I had on hand and added a packet of Splenda for a little sweetness. Very refreshing! Read More

This is sooo tasty. Don't be deceived by its simplicity! I used bottled grapefruit juice (100% juice not ruby red) and a couple pinches of salt. I think I like this even better than my usual summer fav of gin and tonic and that is saying alot! Read More

Simple refreshing and saves me 12.25 from the Chicago cocktail prices when made at home. Bonus points for drinking them without having to interact with the bar crowd. Read More
