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.

This is good but not amazing. We upped the amount of grapefruit because ours wasn’t hugely flavorful and still supplemented with a little simple syrup. I probably won’t make again.
