Make It: Cinnamon Salty Dog Recipe

Cinnamon Salty Dog Cocktail

Happy Friday, everyone! Who’s in need of a DELISH cocktail? Melissa Pina contributed this recipe and we’re pretty sure it’s one you’re going to want to whip up…ASAP! Perfect for fall, a Friday night, or a weekend hang, this Cinnamon Salty Dog hits the spot. Plus, it’s not all that difficult (major win).

Without further ado, let’s get things shaking!

What You’ll Need:

  • Vodka
  • Fresh grapefruit juice
  • Fresh lime
  • Cinnamon
  • Granulated sugar
  • Kosher salt


  1. On a plate, add a heaping spoonful of Kosher salt and small pinches of sugar and cinnamon. Mix well and use this to rim your glasses prior to preparing your cocktail.
  2. In a cocktail shaker, squeeze a lime wedge, add 1 1/2 shots of vodka and a heavy pour of fresh grapefruit juice.
  3. Add a TINY pinch of cinnamon
  4. Shake well, and pour over ice in your cinnamon-salted-rimmed glass…and ENJOY!
