A Salty Dog


Last night I had this whole post composed in my head about Monday night happy hours. I was going to type out this brilliantly eloquent post about greyhounds vs salty dogs and gin vs vodka. It was going to be an epic post. Epic!

I fired up the grill, seasoned the chicken, mixed up my cocktail, and made a few cocktail images. All this time my blog post was ticking away in my head getting more and more spectacular.

Chicken goes on the grill…..Oh, which do you prefer gin or vodka with grapefruit juice….The chicken starts to smoke…..To salt or not to salt….flames start to appear under the grill….WTF?

Luckily, this isn’t my first go around with this grill. I guess, luckily isn’t the right word. Let’s just say this isn’t my first rodeo. I reach under the grill and turn off the gas, step 1. I walk into the house for baking soda, step 2. The baking soda gets dumped on the fire and chicken, step 3. Fire’s out.

Cocktail is consumed. New drink is poured. Brilliant blog post gone. Happy Monday!

Juice one grapefruit
Salt the rim of your glass
Fill glass with ice
Fill glass about 1/3 with Gin (or vodka)
Fill glass with 2/3 grapefruit juice


Please do not use canned or bottled grapefruit juice. This is NOT as good as fresh squeezed. Unless you find a really good bottled source, then let me know. For emergency use only of course.
