The "Salty Dog" cocktail is a refreshing and tangy libation that is perfect for those who appreciate the perfect balance of sweet and salty flavors. It is believed that Salty Dog originated in 1930 when Harry Craddock published it as a simple cocktail with gin, grapefruit, and ice. It has a salted rim that differentiates it from the original drink - Greyhound, but that salt also gives the drink its own personality.
