It’s true. I am a salty
bitch dog. Very salty. And my dog of choice to drive through the Dead Sea is a Greyhound or a Chihuahua. (Or Slikhua…)
So this is my last word on the Salty Dog / Greyhound breakfast bar drink — it most resembles the huge Dog served at the Morning Glory Cafe in Ashland, Oregon — but even that comparison is lacking. There’s salt in this — on the rim of the glass — and sprinkled on top with a finishing salt…. Mmmmm.
You’ll need a large (12-14 oz) red wine goblet for this…. rim it with lime juice, then salt, lime salt, orange salt — your choice.
in a blender, combine:
8 oz freshly squeeze Grapefruit Juice (or Odwalla fresh etc)
4 oz crushed ice
1/2 t kosher flake salt
1 T honey
1 1/2 oz Tito’s Handmade Vodka
5-7 drops of Brooklyn Hemispherical Charred Pineapple Bitters
(or substitute a high quality citrus bitters of your choice — but the pineapple works best IMHO)
a few flakes of Meadow Rosemary Flake Salt to garnish
Trust me and spring for the Rosemary Flake Salt…. it makes all the difference in the world.
