Grapefruit Salty DogHello Friday!

Anyone else out there getting these weird Spring fever vibes with all this unseasonable sunshine and lack of snow?! I feel like St Patty’s is coming up and we haven’t even celebrated Valentine’s Day yet. Mother Nature you have gone cray and I am sort of loving it. (Please don’t snow in April…please don’t snow in April…)

grapefruit_salty_dog2 Grapefruit Salty DogSomething that is never cray is a cocktail post on a Friday. This time around it’s an old school drink with one of my favorite winter ingredients…the almighty grapefruit.

It’s a simple little drink. Mix some grapefruit juice and vodka, throw it in a salt rimmed glass filled with ice and sip. If you want it to be sweet you will not be happy…it’s fresh and salty, absolutely not sweet. Best way I can describe it is this: if a dirty martini and a margarita got married their love child would be a salty dog.

Sounds sort of gross when you say it like that, but I swear if you like to sip on something with a little bite you will thoroughly enjoy this.
