Salty Perro Rojo

Robb Walsh

Servings: 1

With its rosy color and sweet flavor, Texas red grapefruit juice makes an outstanding cocktail. Grapefruit juice and gin is known as a Greyhound, and if you salt the rim of the glass, it’s a Salty Dog. If you substitute tequila for the gin, it’s a Salty Perro. Since the grapefruit juice is red, I call this drink a Salty Perro Rojo.


  • Coarse sea salt
  • 4 shots freshly squeezed red grapefruit juice
  • 1 shot plata tequila


  • Put the salt in a saucer and wet the rim of a highball glass with grapefruit juice.
  • Salt the glass by dipping the wet rim in the salt. Fill the salted glass with ice. Add the tequila, then the juice, and stir carefully so as not to mess up the salted rim.
