Salty Dog Recipe Banner


Looking for a recipe for the Salty Dog cocktail? Look no further.

This is a close relative to the Greyhound. The difference? Just a salt rim.
That’s it. Seems like a bit of fuss to consider them different drinks altogether, no? If you order a margarita,  you just say ‘Salt’ or ‘No Salt.’

Technically, the Salty Dog can be made with vodka OR gin, but we like gin for the Salty and vodka for the Greyhound. Maybe that’s just us?
Anyway… if you want to read a bit about the history of this cocktail, has an entertaining post.
