Cocktail Buzz Tips & Tricks: The Margarita Salt Rim

by Steve Schul & Paul Zablocki, Cocktail Buzz

Margaritas are a favorite of ours year round and we like them with salt. When we first started shaking cocktails the salt rim was one of the first tricks we learned. It's simple and adds just that right touch to your Margarita.

First thing you need to do is gather up your supplies: A lime, knife, cutting board, coarse salt & your cocktail glasses.

Now you can slice a lime wedge (or more if you'd like to use them as garnish for the drinks). Place the lime wedge on the rim of the glass and give it a swipe, concentrating on the top and outside edge of the glass.

Next, simply dip into some of the salt on the cutting board, salting only the top rim and outside of the glass.

Success! You're now ready to add the fun. Cheers!
