This riff on a Salty Dog, created by Craig Schoettler, the executive director of beverage and corporate bartender at MGM Resorts, is a crisp and clean hop-tail topped with a grapefruit radler with a sessionability that renders it perfect for (all-) day drinking. A spicy and salty rim balances out the grapefruit’s bitterness.
This recipe originally appeared as part of “The Best Beermosas for Brunch.”
Rub the lime wedge on half of the outside of a chilled pilsner glass.
Coat with salt and seasoning mix.
Add the tequila, grapefruit and lime juices, and simple syrup, top with the beer, and stir gently.
Garnish with the grapefruit peel.
