If Mavis is moving a little too fast for you to jot down the recipe for the Salty Chihuahua cocktail, here it is:

  • 1. Salt the rim of a Rocks glass
  • 2. Fill your salted rocks glass with ice
  • 3. Pour 1.5 oz Vodka into your cocktail shaker
  • 4. Add 3 oz Grapefruit Juice to the shaker
  • 5. Shake vodka and grapefruit juice
  • 6. Pour into the Rocks glass over ice
  • 7. Enjoy your Salty Chihuahua with friends!

Remember, cocktails are for humans ONLY. Alcohol is toxic to dogs. If you want your pooch to join your festivities, you can always consider a non-alcoholic beer made especially for dogs with broth instead of booze!

Thanks, Mavis!
