The low carb salty dog cocktail is a three-ingredient cocktail made from grapefruit juice, vodka, and sea salt. It is typically garnished with a slice of grapefruit.
It is popular in the low carb community, as it is ketogenic and low-carb.
In addition to being low-carb and keto-friendly, the salty dog cocktail is also a simple mixed drink to make.
Vodka is a common base liquor for the salty dog cocktail, as it has a flavor profile that stands out well against the grapefruit juice and salt flavors.
Vodka has no carbs, and grapefruit juice has a low carb count. However, be mindful of the type of vodka you use as some vodkas (flavor vodkas) include sugars or other carbs in their ingredients.
Grapefruit juice is naturally low-carb and keto-friendly, but it also tends to be fairly bitter. The salt helps balance out the bitterness and adds a little extra flavor.
This keto grapefruit salty dog cocktail is refreshing and delicious; its low carb count makes it an excellent choice for people on low carb diets.
