- 1.5 ounces of vodka
- .5 ounces of Campari
- Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
- Lime garnish
Using a lime wedge, wet the rim of a rocks glass and line with course salt. Fill the glass with ice and ad a full shot of vodka. Fill the glass nearly full with grapefruit juice. Gently sink a “1 2” count of Campari to the bottom of the drink. Garnish with a lime wedge.
Campari is one of those old school liquors that is completely undervalued as a cocktail ingredient in the US. Campari is most famously served with Soda water, but I think this version of a Grayhound and Salty Dog illustrates just how versatile a liquor Campari truly is.
