The Salty Dog

posted in Recipes, Useful Info |

In my daily search of the net for cool new various concoctions I came accross the following site: TheArtOfdrink.com

The author of this blog is a bartender and apparently spends his free time much like I do… Supplying the public with useful information on drinking along with some pretty cool recipes… His most recent post is what first caught my eye (Mainly cause I like the name, but it sounds pretty good too):

Salty Dog salty_2ddog_2d2.jpg

1½ oz Gin (or Vodka)
3 oz Grapefruit Juice

Instructions: Rim a highball glass with salt and pack the glass with ice. Add gin and grapefruit juice. Garnish with a cherry.

This is a simple drink like the Screwdriver, but if you use gin it will make it a little more complex. The salt ads a pleasant flavour not found in most cocktails (It also helps reduce the bitter taste of the grapefruit juice) and you could probably drink a lot of these because the sugar content is exceptionally low compared to the vast majority of sugar laden cocktails. Best enjoyed on a hot summer day.
