A spicy booze-free take on the Salty Dog cocktail. Select the sweeter pink grapefruit for this drink, rather than white which can be a bit more bitter.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 9 ounces fresh pink grapefruit juice (from 1 1/2 large grapefruits), spent skins reserved
  • 1 teaspoon dark brown sugar, loosely packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha

Directions

  1. Place the salt in a small, shallow plate in an even layer. Moisten the rim of a coupe glass by running the already-squeezed grapefruit skin around the rim. Dip glass into salt and set aside. Repeat with second glass.

  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour grapefruit juice, Sriracha, and brown sugar into cocktail shaker. Shake until well chilled, about 15 seconds, and strain into salt-rimmed coupe glasses. Serve immediately
