The Salty dog is a classic cocktail that all bartenders know, yet its presence on cocktail menus is not necessarily very common. George Jessel is said to be the creator of this cocktail.

It may happen to cross recipes of Salty dogs with gin instead of vodka, it is not the original composition but it is indeed alcohol that can best replace vodka.</ p>

The closest cocktail to the Salty dog is the Greyhound, it has the same composition as the Salty dog except that the glass is not frosted with salt.
