Salty Dog Cocktail (a.k.a Greyhound with salt)

Après ski drankin’ is normally all about the hot stuff with booze added. Don’t get me wrong, it is my fav. However, there is something about having a nice summery type cocktail while looking out on snow covered mountains. I learned about this little treat of a cocktail last March while in Charleston with Nummy Num Num’s own RipleyPickles. -ts

1 ½ ounces vodka or gin
3-4 ounces freshly squeezed grapefruit juice (may need a little simple syrup if your is too sour)
Kosher salt to garnish rim

  1. First, rim a rocks glass with salt (if you love your booze like Sandra Lee use more vodka to rim the glass). Add vodka (or gin) and grapefruit juice, then stir with a few cubes of ice.

Sneaky Punch… Oh it’s sneaky!!!

As much as I want to start this ingredient list with “two pink cans of lemonade” a la Emily’s now-infamous contribution to Kate’s engagement cookbook, I’ll refrain. This stuff is equal parts delicious and lethal. You should probably call A.J. (a.k.a. the best cab driver in Nashville) in advance.

1 can of frozen pink lemonade
6 beers (light beers are the best – if you throw a Heineken or another equally flavorful beer in here it’s going to wack out the flavor, and not in a good way)
(1 of the lemonade cans full or, as Emily says, “enough gin for however frisky you’re feeling”)

  1. Throw all of the ingredients in a pitcher and stir.
  2. Chill and serve on ice.
  3. Try to stay vertical.
