It’s feeling like spring here (finally) and the sunshine and warmer weather makes me think about lazy days by the pool and hosting pool parties. And whenever I think about a pool party or a warm spring evening with friends, I always think about cocktails. This Salty Dog Punch is the first of three cocktails I have to share with you over the next few weeks and it’s a keeper, so be sure to pin it because you’re going to want to come back to it again and again. It’s inspired by a cocktail I had at the Morton Salt Next Door Chef: Nashville even I went to a few months ago, and is really brought together by the salted rim.

So, you ask, what is a “Salty Dog” cocktail? It an easy recipe that combines either gin or vodka with grapefruit juice, which is basically a greyhound cocktail but the difference is that you salt the rim of the glass, like you do margarita. (Get it? Salty Dog is a Greyhound with salt? Haha!) I started thinking about what drinks besides margaritas have salted rims and a little research led me to this gem of a drink. Not only does it taste good, but it’s so pretty and just screams spring, doesn’t it?

Normally, a Salty Dog is just one drink: you make yourself one in a highball glass after a long day at work. But, crafty girl that I am, I turned it into a PUNCH recipe because it’s no fun to drink alone. To turn the drink into a punch, I added a bottle of lemon-lime soda. I like adding a bit of sweet to my cocktails, especially with the unsweetened grapefruit juice, but if you want a more authentic drink, you can use club soda instead.

Just a few ingredients: grapefruit juice, vodka, soda, lime, and a nice salted rim turn into the perfect party punch! I can see myself drinking this away at Easter brunch, can’t you?
