Salty Dog I

Rated as 4.71 out of 5 Stars

"Simple recipe especially for those who love vodka. Adult beverage, not for the kiddies! I sometimes use a regular 8 ounce juice glass instead of a highball glass, it depends on the quantity of ice you like."

A good brunch drink. I was originally introduced to it as an alternative to the Bloody Mary. One thing though, the way I'm used to preparing it is with a the rim of the glass covered in coarse s...

A salty dog has been a favorite. The way I have always had it was with vodka, and instead of putting the salt in the drink, you moisten the rim of the glass and dip it in salt. Refreshing!

Good, but I've been drinking salty dogs for a long time, and the salt needs to be on the rim of the glass...imo : )

I love salty dogs!! I am a regurlar drinker of these and this is a good receipe. I though use half grapefruit and half water because i think sometimes the grapefruit gets to over powering!

I won't laugh at you, Heather. I love grapefruit with salt. This is a great drink, salt and all.

Really good! I was kind of skeptical of the salt but it really compliments everything well. And others are right, you can't taste the vodka. Dangerous!
