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.

This is a great drink! I love grapefruits with salt on them (everyone laughs at me) so this drink is perfect for me. I do cut back on the salt a bit though...1/4 tsp. is a bit much. Anyway thanks! (By the way I hope I don't mess up the rating by giving it one star on the kid rating--they're not supposed to like it cuz their not supposed to try it! LOL) Read More

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 salt a la a margarita and a cocktail straw. It lets the person drinking it control the amount of salt in case they just want the fruit juice and liqour. Read More

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! Read More

I give this drink the full 5 stars plus!! My husband introduced me to this drink. I couldn't even taste the vodka which came back to kick me in the butt. LOL.. I don't even like grapefruits but this drink is awesome. I just have to take it a little slower from now on. Read More

Simple yet so delicious. I had never had a salty dog with vodka. I used freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and I didn't measure the salt just added enough to taste. I can't even taste the alcohol dangerous. Read More

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: ) Read More

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! Read More
