Dricus' Legendary Mix: the Salty Dog

Sweet, sour and a little salty.

This week, we feel like sipping on something tart and strong. The Salty Dog may sound a little odd but trust us, it’s delish. The sweet-and-sour flavour of the grapefruit is undercut by a surprising hint of salt, all complemented by the smooth, distinctive taste of Gordon’s Gin. Shake a batch up this weekend and sip ’til Monday.

2 parts Gordon’s Gin
3 parts grapefruit juice
1 slice grapefruit
Rim with salt cystals

How it’s done
1 Salt the rim of a highball glass.
2 Pour the Gordon’s Gin and grapefruit juice into a chilled cocktail shaker filled with ice.
3 Strain into the glass without the ice.
4 Garnish with a slice of grapefruit
