Salty Dog

A refreshing gin and grapefruit drink that is named because of its salt rim. Without the salt, this drink is called a greyhound. You can substitute vodka if you don’t have gin to hand.

SERVES 2

INGREDIENTS

  • 100ml gin (use Malfy Gin Rosa for extra grapefruit flavour)
  • 200ml grapefruit juice
  • 30ml sugar syrup
  • Sea salt flakes 
  • Ice
  • Slices fresh grapefruit
  • 2 sprigs thyme

METHOD

  1. Place sea salt flakes on a small plate. Moisten the rim of the glass with a grapefruit slice, and dip the rim in the salt, turning glass slightly so the salt sticks. Fill glass with ice.

  2. In a cocktail shaker, mix gin, grapefruit juice and sugar syrup. Shake until well combined, then pour over ice. Garnish with fresh grapefruit slices, and thyme sprigs (rub the sprigs a little to bring out the aroma first).
