Have you ever been with a group of friends at a new-to-you bar and everyone is already set to order, so you panic and have to pick something quick? When this happens to me I almost always just pick a cocktail that has grapefruit in the description. I feel like you can’t go wrong, especially with a frozen sweet and salty dog.
This is probably why one of my favorite, easy-to-make-at-home, cocktails is a Salty Dog (which is basically a Greyhound but with a salted rim). It’s simple, tart, and totally refreshing.
But the weather is currently heating up in my neck of the woods (literally my house backs up to the woods—ha), so if it’s not chilled, I’m not interested. And the only thing better than a chilled cocktail is probably a frozen one! Feels so special.
We are currently working on sprucing up our back patio and I can’t wait until we’re finished and we get to sit outside as the sun sets and sip a few cocktails together this summer! xo. Emma

I love this recipe, and the cup you’re serving it in. I am going to try this at home this weekend. It will be 96 degrees here in Chicago!
I’m so juicing my Texas Sized Ruby Red Grapefruits for this!! Gracias!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE! Where can I get those ADORABLE glasses??
Would you be so kind to share where the glasses are sourced from? TY!
Be sure to hug your partner today. You are lucky to have someone special to love.
Hi Emma! I am planning on preparing your beautiful cocktail drink you shared but am not able to find those glasses on William Somona Site. Do you have a link by any chance? Thanks so much!!
Oh my word, these sound delicious! I love tart icy cocktails!

Love! Love! Love! My new favorite summer drink. The cocktail glasses are amazing. They look vintage, but if you know where I can find some, please pass on the info. Thanks!
That sounds like the perfect drink for the weekend, yummy!
Oh my goodness this looks so delicious!!!! Any ways to make this a non-alcoholic drink that isn’t dull?

Hmm, well that’s sort of the problem with non-alcoholic drinks isn’t it?
JK. 🙂 I’m just being cheeky.
Honestly this would still be quite good with just omitting the vodka. Another thing I thought about trying next time I blend these up is adding a tablespoon of cream of coconut. I think this would make it even more summer-y feeling and might be something to try to make it even more special if you are omitting the spirits. Good luck and cheers!
Cannot get enough of your delicious cocktail recipes! Oh and I visited The Golden Girl Rum Club earlier this week while on my honeymoon and was enthralled with every drink we tried! Wasn’t there a cocktail similar there at your bar? I guess I can check when I get home as I purchased a menu as a souvenir 🙂
Citrus always seems to be the best for thirst quenching and feeling refreshed! I bet this will hit the spot on a warm afternoon! Thanks, Emma!
This looks super Insta-worthy! ????
