Salty Dog

This recipe calls for coating the rim of the glass with salt, although some have you put a pinch of salt into the drink itself.  Also, fresh grapefruit juice is preferred, but it is ok to use bottled or canned grapefruit juice, especially if you are making multiple drinks during Pitch card games


  • 4 oz fresh grapefruit juice
  • 2 oz vodka (or, if you prefer, gin)
  • Kosher salt for the glass rim (preferably Diamond brand)
  • Half slice of lime for garnish

Pour salt onto small plate. Moisten the rim of a rocks glass (or a highball glass if you choose) with some of the grapefruit and gently dip rim into salt to coat lightly. Put ice in the glass (I use one large “old fashioned” cube) and add the grapefruit juice and vodka.   Add lime slice to rim and serve.
