Salty Dog Grapefruit Cocktail


This grapefruit cocktail is the perfect refreshing summer drink that will instantly transport you to the beach.

Mixed with ruby red grapefruit juice, lime seltzer and a good quality vodka, you’re going to love how refreshing it is on a hot summer’s day.

I have no idea why it’s called a Salty Dog. But it is salty, sweet and fizzy with just enough vodka to give it a little kick. It’s really the perfect type of cocktail for any time of the day (within reason!).

If you like Margaritas but want something a little different, then I think you’ll enjoy this. Heck, I think you’ll enjoy it no matter what your usual favorite summer beverage is!

It’s really quick to make and you can adjust the measurements easily to make a full pitcher if you’d prefer.

I only make it a glass or two at a time, because I’m a huge lightweight and this is a little too easy to drink if you know what I mean.

All you need is a glass full of ice and a shot of vodka. Over that you’re going to pour 3 ounces of ruby red grapefruit juice, then top with about a 1/2 ounce of lime selzter (I like La Croix or Polar Seltzer).
