It’s a bit blustery today, which is only fueling the feel of Spring sweeping through the park...

On my way to meeting up with girlfriends, I’m in flux as to what to sip on as we catch up over the week’s adventures. Nothing frou-frou today I muse. No, something classic will do the trick...a something in blush that hints of future citrusy days to come.

The Salty Dog

4 oz. freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
2 oz. Hendrick’s gin
1/4 teaspoon salt mixed with 1/8 tsp sugar, for rimming

Pour all ingredients over ice cubes in a highball glass rimmed with salt/sugar mixture. Stir well & serve. Serves 1.
