Kyle's was made with gin and mine with vodka - I preferred mine, but his was the big winner among the group (and he obviously liked his better than I liked mine, since he had, well, a few).
The Salty Dog is a nice alternative to traditional morning or daytime drinks, like mimosas and Bloody Marys. The grapefruit juice is a little bitter, but the salt cuts it neatly. Overall, it's a good mix and genuinely refreshing.
Plus, it's pretty, right?
