Summer Drink Series: Downward Facing Dog

Hello Darlings!

In light of my exciting announcement yesterday, I thought it might be fun for the cocktail this week to be yoga themed! The Salty Dog is a well-known gin drink so I put a little spin on it to transform it into the Downward Facing Dog! When I think yoga, I think healthy living and the Indian lifestyle from which yoga originated. I added a bit of coconut water for a healthy bit of hydration and swapped the regular salt rim for a dusting of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt!


- 2 Ounces Gin
- 2 Ounces Grapefruit Juice
- 2 Ounces Coconut Water
- Pink Himalayan Sea Salt


1. Add gin, grapefruit juice, and coconut water to a cocktail shaker.
2. Add ice and shake vigorously.

3. Get your glass ready to rim by rubbing the edge in the leftover grapefruit rind. If you used ready-made grapefruit juice, a lemon or a lime wedge would work for this as well.

4. Place wet rim into a saucer of loose Pink Himalayan Sea Salt. Rotate to cover well. Tap the glass to remove any loose salt.

5. Add ice to your salt-rimmed glass and pour in liquid mixture.

6. Garnish with a grapefruit peel spiral.

7. Enjoy!
