Alex Guarnaschelli's Salty Dog
Cool Off With This Refreshing Drink
Cool off with this sweet and tasty drink this weekend!
In a small saucepan, combine the water and sugar. Bring to a boil and shut off the heat. Transfer to a bowl to cool. Refrigerate.
In a medium bowl, combine half of the cucumber slices with the grapefruit segments. Muddle them by pressing down on them with a whisk to extract the juices and lightly crush the cucumbers. Add the vodka and lime juice and 1 cup lightly crushed ice. Pour into 4 rocks glasses and grind a little salt over the top. Or you can serve in a pitcher and sprinkle with the salt as you pour the individual drinks.
