Ginger Dog

The Ginger Dog features the flavors of vodka, ginger and grapefruit, which is a most refreshing combination. For the ginger, it uses Powell & Mahoney’s natural, handcrafted ginger mixer.

This is a great cocktail for those who prefer their drinks less sweet. The spice of the ginger and the tang of the grapefruit are tamed not by sugar, but by a salt rim. It’s a delicious alternative to the venerable old Blue Dog recipe.


  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 1 1/2 ounces Powell & Mahoney Ginger
  • 1 ounce fresh grapefruit juice

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, pour in all the ingredients and shake thoroughly. Moisten the rim of a Collins glass with grapefruit juice and rim it with coarse salt. Add ice to the glass and strain the mixture into it. Garnish with a grapefruit slice.
