Dead Sea Dog — A Frozen, Blended, Slush Doggie

Standard

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.

Meadow Rosemary Infused Flake Salt

Meadow Rosemary Infused Flake Salt

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.
