Salty Dog

Looking for a simple, easy and absolutely delicious gin cocktail? Try the Salty Dog cocktail and thank us later. This classic gin cocktail has been the favourite go-to drink of many cocktail lovers for decades. 

Curious about how this classic gin cocktail came into existence? A popular theory is that it was crafted by a bartender who wanted to add a fresh spin to another classic cocktail - the Greyhound. Typically greyhound is made with gin and grapefruit juice. It was already a most cherished drink at the time. Salty Dog on the other hand has the same ingredients, gin and grapefruit juice but it is served in a salt-rimmed highball glass. And yes, the addition of salt makes all the difference! It also balances the sharpness of the gin, enhances the flavours of the grapefruit juice to lean towards sweetness and adds a nice contrast to the drink.

This refreshing cocktail recipe is super easy to make at home. Whether it’s a simple house party, a weekend get-together or a drink to indulge your senses, you can’t go wrong with this gin cocktail. The cocktail recipe features the effervescent Tanqueray London Dry Gin. One of the most awarded gins in the world, the Tanqueray London Dry gin was first introduced in 1830. Since then, it has been the favourite spirit and has been used in many cocktail recipes. This classic spirit is distilled with only four botanicals - juniper, coriander, angelica root and liquorice. Yet, Tanqueray London Dry Gin has a rich and aromatic flavour profile that makes it worth every sip. 

Whatever may be the occasion, the Salty Dog is a refreshing and satisfying gin cocktail that is sure to impress.  So why not mix up a Salty Dog today and experience the magic of this classic cocktail for yourself?
