Salty Dog "The Remix" = Salty HOT Dog

This post is part of our series called "The Remix". Here we take classic cocktails and give them our own twist.

What self-respecting barfly hasn't had a Salty Dog?  You know, that classic gin and grapefruit concoction with a salted rim.  Well we took it, smacked it up, flipped it, rubbed it down and gave it some much-needed FLAVA'! 

It's everything you never knew you always wanted in a cocktail!

Start with a nice, juicy grapefruit!

Add some grapefruit rind
Chili peppers for a kick!

Muddle those babies!

Add gin, grenadine, simple syrup and lemon juice and you're like a doggie in heat, a freak without warning...

Ladies and gentlemen, we give you:
The Salty Hot Dog

Garnish with a gummy hot dog and eat the rest of the package when no one's looking...
Now THAT'S what we call lunch!

Salty Hot Dog

Makes 1

2½ ounces freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
1½ ounces gin
1 teaspoon diced jalapeño
1 teaspoon grenadine
1-2 teaspoons simple syrup
½ ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
¼ teaspoon grated grapefruit rind
Kosher salt

Add grapefruit juice, gin and diced jalapeño to a cocktail shaker and muddle.  Next add grenadine, simple syrup, lemon juice, grapefruit rind and ice. Shake vigorously until a frost forms. Rub rim of glass with lemon wedge and dip into salt.  Strain into a chilled glass and garnish with a gummy hot dog!  Gummy hot dog part is NOT optional!

Now he just needs a little salt!
