I had to try this thing! I was not disappointed!

How have I not had a salty dog before? That is definitely going to be remedied very soon. Your cocktail is gorgeous and sounds amazing.

Okay, don't laugh at me but I didn't know what a Salty Dog was so at first I thought you had done something really creative with a hot dog and a grapefruit! :) But this drink looks amazing! I have to give this a try!
    Becky Hardin
    Thank you Annie!! Oh and I totally thought it was a hotdog too when I saw the sign in San Diego! I was pleasantly surprised!!! lol

this cocktail looks so yummy, but I can't have grapefruit due to certain medications I have to take. Do you have another vodka based drink I could try? And I love grapefruit
    Becky Hardin
    Hey Jo, thanks for stopping by! So sorry to hear you can't have grapefruit! Here is a link to my other cocktails, most of them are vodka based. A couple of my faves are the red berry sangria and the raspberry lemon drop! https://www.thecookierookie.com/category/recipes/drinks/

    Jo, talk to your doc about the grapefruit. Hubby also takes meds that clash with grapefruit. However, his doc said (A) it's okay to eat grapefruit in the AM since he takes the meds in the PM and (B) the benefits of the grapefruit outweigh whatever the negative effects are. So, ask your doc about it. Hubby now enjoys his morning grapefruits again!

I am HUGE on grapefruit cocktails. This one is right up my alley!

Wow, I LOVE these pics! And I feel like grapefruit is such an underutilized fruit, this drink looks so light and refreshing.

I love San Diego. Next time I'm in town, I'll have to stop there. Your pictures are gorgeous and I've got to give this drink a try!
