Salty Dog













This past week has been one crazy busy week.  My finance department just finished undergoing an annual audit of our year end financial statements.  All went extremely well but those who know what I am talking about know regardless of how successful an audit is, audit preparation can be time consuming and a wee bit stressful.  Not to mention, I have not been able to spend any time home in my kitchen.  Microwave products, fast food and dinners out have been my only options this week.

It’s over.  I’m happy.  I’m finally home.   And it’s time for a Salty Dog!

A Salty Dog is a simple cocktail made with pink grapefruit juice, vodka, and salt.  I like to use pink Himalayan salt and crushed ice in mine.

Here’s to a successful audit!   Great job everybody!  Cheers!  – Tessa


  • 5 ounces pink grapefruit juice (strained)
  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 1/4 cup crushed ice
  • coarse pink Himalayan sea salt
  • grapefruit wedge for garnish

Begin by mixing grapefruit juice, vodka and ice in a shaker.  Line the edge of a martini glass or an old fashioned glass with salt.  Pour cocktail mixture into the glass.  Garnish with a grapefruit wedge.  Sit down, put up your feet and enjoy the beverage.  Makes one cocktail.
