Vodka and grapefruit juice make a great team! This salty dog drink is irresistible and a great sipper for sitting on the deck.
Although I wouldn’t exactly call our new puppy “salty,” but like a Salty Dog drink, Buddy is a refreshing addition to our home! Buddy is energetic, he loves to chew on EVERYTHING and he is such a little lover. My boys adore him. Elijah likes to stick his face near Buddy’s and get tons of slobbery kisses. Sammy is working on training him. And I am learning that having a dog in the house is much like having a new crawler. I have to watch him every second of the day or he will get into things that I didn’t even know we owned.
A lot of tasks have fallen to the wayside since Buddy joined our family, such as checking camera settings before taking pictures of succulent beverages. Thank you, Lightroom, for helping to cover up my mistakes because I certainly don’t have time for another photo session.
Isn’t he the most adorable pup you’ve ever seen?
WHAT IS A SALTY DOG DRINK
Traditionally it’s a drink served in a high ball glass with a salted rim and it is mixed with gin or vodka.
Salty Dogs. Have you ever had one? They are so super simple and yummy that it’s hard not to guzzle them like an ice-cold glass of lemonade. They are refreshing and great on a hot day. Yum yum yum. Pour one for yourself this spring and enjoy it on the patio!
Buddy is SLEEPING, so my time is ticking! Have a good one!
