The Salty Dog

About the Salty Dog

The Salty Dog is thought to have originated during or just after the Prohibition Era. Without the salt, a Salty Dog is known as a Greyhound Cocktail. Like many drinks from this era, the Salty Dog is traditionally made with gin, however more modern recipes have replaced gin with vodka. Fruity yet bitter, the Salty Dog is a decent brunch or late afternoon cocktail.
