#DOTW: Salty Dog

This is probably the easiest cocktail recipe I ever posted. However, it’s definitely one of my favorites. It’s just so delicious. As summer winds down, I feel this is perfect to sip on in the evening with friends. It’s not too bitter, because I replaced the grapefruit juice with Polar’s Grapefruit soda, which is absolutely yummy. I can drink these nonstop (having to pay dearly the next day). I hope you enjoy these as much I do!

What you’ll need:

In a cocktail shaker, combine gin, grapefrut juice and lime juice with ice. Add salt to the rim of a cocktail glass, then fill it with ice. Strain contents of the shaker into the cocktail glass. Add a wedge of lime into the cocktail, then garnish the glass with a slice of grapefruit.

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!
