The Salty Dog is the saline version of the popular "canine" drink, the Greyhound. These two drinks are great, if you learn one you know the other; just switch the vodka with gin and salt the glass rim and the your Greyhound becomes a Salty Dog. Personally I like this drink better, the gin adds depth to the grapefruit and if you add a dash of peach bitters, WOW!

Just a warning, Member Erika_Rakupi

Salty Dog is Vodka base!!!! I hope there's not too many mistakes in the recipes... I'm just revising cocktails and I don't want to get confused.
