Happy Hour: Greyhound

The other day, while I was at one of my favorite bars — Cantina — I had a delicious and refreshing drink made with fresh grapefruit juice. A variation on the classic caipirinha, the cocktail was on the menu for that night only. I wanted to run home and re-create the delightful concoction, but I couldn't remember the list of ingredients. Since the grapefruit juice is what stood out the most, I settled on making a greyhound.

I always thought this was called a Salty Dog, maybe it's the same plus a bit of salt? Either way, very nice on a hot summer night! :)

this is my favorite drink, but it's only good with fresh juice. Most places use the canned stuff.

I love this drink - Houston's makes a great one w/freshly squeezed juice!! And as one of my good friends says, "one of the benefits to drinking Greyhounds is it will keep us from getting scurvy ;)"
