Its simplicity relies on a well-balanced harmony between the bitterness and sweetness of the grapefruit and the complex flavors of the gin, creating a drink that is beloved for its bright and bracing character. The Salty Dog is closely related to the Greyhound cocktail; the main difference being the salted rim that transforms the Greyhound into the Salty Dog. Ideal for sipping on a warm day, the Salty Dog holds a special place in the canon of summertime drinks.
