Happy Friday friends –

I couldn’t resist the name of today’s cocktail – Salty Dog.  
It makes me think of a dog on a boat,

or at the beach, all salty from the sea.

A Salty Dog is a cocktail of gin or vodka and grapefruit juice, served in a highball glass with a salted rim. Without the salt, your Salty Dog becomes a Greyhound.
