The Salty Dog


The Salty Dog originated as a means for sailors to take their vitamins in a more “fun” way. As vodka became more popular in the U.S., the influence of the sailors spread including their favorite drink: the Salty Dog. Very simple to make and packing a punch, the drink involves a perfect balance of vodka and fresh grapefruit juice at a 1:2 ratio, respectively.


What you’ll need:

  • 1 ½ oz  Vodka
  • 3 oz Fresh Pink Grapefruit Juice
  • Salt


How to make it:

Now it’s time to make the pup. We highly encourage a cocktail shaker but a blender will also suffice (make sure to not include the ice in the blender, because it will dilute your drink). These directions will assume you already are a badass at-home cocktail maker and have gone out to get the shaker.


  1. Salt your glass, preferably a Mason jar/Collins glass, around it’s rim. Don’t be afraid to be generous with it.
  2. Fill up your shaker with ice.
  3. Add your Vodka, and Fresh Grapefruit Juice into your shaker.
  4. Keep shaking your drink until the drink is chilled (usually about 10 seconds).
  5. Pour out your drink into your cup with the same ice.
  6. You may even garnish your glass with a lime wheel or a wedge from the grapefruit you squeezed the juice from.
  7. Enjoy!


Woah! You’ve just made a beautiful drink (we won’t judge if you put it on the ‘gram). For quality cocktail ingredients and at home delivery, go to ShopSK.
