A Salty Dog is a cocktail of gin and grapefruit juice, served in a highball glass with a salted rim. The salt is the only difference between a Salty Dog and a Greyhound. Vodka may be used as a substitute for gin.
A newer version (related to the ubiquity of vodka) attempts to make this a vodka drink. It is historically a gin drink.
