#DrinkOfTheWeek: Salty Dog Fizz

One of my favorite songs ever is Gin and Juice by Snoop Dogg. Much unlike the drink which has never tickled my fancy. So apparently I have been missing out, because there is a cocktail out there that combines Gin and Juice, Gin Fizz and a Salty Dogg , and it’s just lovely! Sour, sweet and salty all in one, it’s another yummy addition to lineup of refreshing summer cocktails!



What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 oz Hendricks Gin (Quality Gin of your choice)
  • 3 oz grapefruit juice
  • 3 oz club soda
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • pink sea salt

Combine gin, simple syrup and grapefruit juice in a shaker with ice, shake well. Dip rim of glass into simple syrup, then into sea salt. Add ice to the glass, pour in gin mixture and top it off with club soda.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
