Greyhound vs. Salty Dog

no brunch is complete without a greyhound or salty dog! no, this isn't a match up in michael vick's backyard {ouch!}, it's a refreshing grapefruit/vodka brunch bevvie {read: beverage}. it's also a funky alternative to the typical screwdriver {read: uh, never mind}!

the only difference between a greyhound & salty dog is that the latter has a salted rim!

{greyhound}
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 4 ounces grapefruit juice
*shake, stir & serve chilled!

{salty dog}
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 4 ounces grapefruit juice
  • 2 teaspoons salt
1. rimming {a.k.a. salting the rim}: wet the rim of a cocktail glass using a fresh lime wedge. pour salt into a small dish & roll the rim of the glass in the salt.
*i also like to mix sugar & salt for this cocktail-the sweet balances the bitter!
2. mix vodka & grapefruit juice, shake, stir & serve chilled!

CAUTION...after a few you can get yourself into situations like this...

  1. In 2012 the Greyhound was further differentiated by making it with Pink grapefruit juice.
