Dirty Dog Martini

(Serves 1)
Stay cool during the dog days of summer and celebrate National Dog Day with Fossil Creek’s Dirty Dog Martini. This is the perfect refreshing summer cocktail to enjoy during the final days of summer. Toast your best canine friend with Fossil Creek’s Dirty Dog Martini but remember it isn’t safe to share alcoholic beverages with your four-legged friends. Our very simple-to-make recipe calls for vodka, grapefruit juice, triple sec, pineapple juice, grapefruit sparkling beverage or soda, ice and of course your dog will be watching inquisitively as you make it, (what is my master doing?!) ! This signature cocktail is light and refreshing and just a touch salty for that zing.

Cocktail recipe for adult humans 21 and over only. Please drink responsibly.

dirty dog martini ingredients


6 ounces (approx 3/4 cup) grapefruit juice
Salt for rimming
1 1/2 ounces vodka
Dash of triple sec to personal taste
Fresh, or organic pineapple juice to taste
Splash of sparkling grapefruit beverage or soda
Lemon or grapefruit wedge for garnish

Moisten rim of martini glass with grapefruit juice. Dip glass into salt, then fill the glass with ice. Pour vodka and triple sec over ice, and stir in the grapefruit juice. Gently pour the desired amount of pineapple juice over the ice and create “layer effect” if desired. Top it all off with sparkling grapefruit juice beverage or soda, (such as Yerba Mate Sparkling Grapefruit Ginger, or Squirt Soda). Finally, garnish with a lemon or grapefruit wedge.
