Sip a Salty Dog!
You may not know it but animal lovers across the world recently celebrated World Cat Day and to do our part we’re proud to present what’s called the Salty Dog which is sure to reunite canine and feline lovers alike!
The rivalry between cats and dogs is a long one. And not just among those with fur but between people also with preferences going one way or the other. This World Cat Day, Hendrick’s Gin restores the peace between the two with a refreshing Salty Dog tipple which is as zesty and as savory as the mythical carbonated gardens of the Victorian era.
The Salty Dog cocktail mixes a premium gin with the refreshing power of the grapefruit. The tipple can be easily made, even in the blasting folly of a Winter’s day, but it lacks a certain something. That certain something is the flavorsome contrast of a salty rim, once so configured you have the wickedly naughty Salty Dog. This just goes to show that the cat is the wickedly behaved one, or until proven so. No matter how you look at it, we say, cats and dog can evidently also be, the best of buddies… bottoms up!
