Salty Dog Cocktail and Holiday Giveaway + AMEX Gift Card

Tis the Season, here is a great cocktail for you to enjoy and a giveaway to help make your holiday a little brighter!

A grapefruit and vodka cocktail is called a Greyhound, if you add a salt-rimmed glass it’s now called a Salty Dog. How did I come up with this cocktail, it was all about the salt.

I stumbled upon Hepp’s Salt Barrel Co. Gourmet Salts, and I ordered up a batch, fell in love, contacted them told them how much I loved their salts and asked them to do a giveaway for my readers.  They agreed.  WOO-HOO!

You so want to win this giveaway.  I used their Vanilla Bean sea salt to rim this cocktail, but I am envisioning it on some dark chocolate brownies, or my holiday chocolate bark. YUMMY!

I also tried their Hickory Flavor on my Baked Salmon- it added a TON of flavor!  They sell so many flavors I had a heck of a time picking the ones I wanted.  Let me tell you any foodie on your holiday list would LOVE a package of Hepp’s Salt!  It is as beautiful and it is delicious!  So get your butt signed up to win!  details below


  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 1 1/2 ounces red grapfruit juice
  • Vanilla Bean flavored salt
  • Grapefruit wedge

Cut a grapefruit in half, juicing one half.  In a martini shaker add ice, juice, vodka and shake to mix.

Rub rim of glass over other 1/2 of grapefruit and then sit glass onto salt to coat rim.

Pour cocktail in glass, add Grapefruit wedge and enjoy!

      Candace, the salt is yummy. They also have a lemon flavor that I am sure would be wonderful on a rim of a margarita…
