Hobbs Salty Dog (Martini)

This a la mode version of the classic ‘Salty Dog’, is intensified by the complex botanicals of the Hobbs 150. We set sail with a gentle encounter of maraschino cherry on the lips, which introduces the citrus notes of the gin, increasing to an alluring bittersweet citrus zest of the grapefruit. The lime infused salt around the rim will suppress the bitterness of the fresh grapefruit and intensify the explosion of ice-cold citrus spice on the palate.

60ml Fresh pink grapefruit
5ml Luxardo Maraschino liquor
