The SALTY DOG Cocktail Recipe

SALTY DOG Grapefruit & Gin or Vodka Cocktail

The Salty Dog was originally created as The Greyhound by Harry Craddock (see recipe in his 1930s The Savoy Cocktail book). In the 1950s it was modified slightly by adding a salted rim to balance the bitterness of the grapefruit juice. This is when the rumors popped up that actor George Jessel was responsible for the addition. Others say it was changed by the same person who invented the Bloody Mary. Yes, another murky cocktail history ... but what do you expect? They were all drinking all the time!

 
Originally a gin cocktail, vodka is the current popular spirit choice. Whichever spirit you prefer, choose a decent one because cheap booze is truly noticable in a simple recipe like this. This is my preferred version:

CHOCOLATE COVERED CHERRY MARTINI Cocktail Recipe

Chocolate Covered Cherry Martini Recipe

My love of chocolate covered cherries goes back as far as my memories. I looked forward every year to my grandfather bringing us a box of Brach's Chocolate Covered Cherries at Christmas. That first bite, with the cherry liquid center oozing down your fingers, was a sticky sugar rush heaven.

I've recreated that whole experience here - only you get 3 ounces of liquid center followed by the bite of chocolate cherry, AND you get that at 40 proof.
