Salty Dog Cocktail and Holiday Giveaway + AMEX Gift Card

by Amy Stafford on December 1, 2012

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

Ingredients:

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

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!

Well, my friends at Hepp’s Salt want you to try 5 of their gourmet salts at a $50+ value and threw in a $25.00 American Express Gift Card for your last minute holiday needs. Awesome prize pack up for grabs! If you want to take this home with you, find out the ways you can enter in the Rafflecopter widget below.

Can’t wait to try! Do you have to order the salts online or is there a local retailer?

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