My friends and I used to call this drink "jungle juice." It's nice to know the real name!:)

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 ;)"
