The Minty Dog Cocktail Recipe


1.5 oz grapefruit juice
1.5 oz gin (or vodka)
mint sugar  (directions below)


  1. To make mint sugar place 1/4 cup of mint leaves and half a cup of sugar in a grinder or blender and process until finely ground.
  2. Moisten the rim of your glass with some grapefruit juice. (The juice helps the sugar to adhere better than water does.)
  3. Place mint sugar on a flat dish or tray, turn the glass over into the dish and coat the rim with sugar.
  4. Pour grapefruit juice and gin over ice.
