If you're celebrating Cinco de Mayo, try one of our favorite margarita tricks: a Lime Sea Salted Rim.
With a refreshing citrusy flavor, our Lime Sea Salt is the perfect complement to a well-crafted margarita. The salt serves as more than just an aesthetic purpose - it helps to balance out the flavors of the ingredients found within the cocktail.
The course texture of our Lime Sea Salt is ideal for the rim of a margarita. Prepare your margarita mix with your preferred ingredients (we always recommend fresh limes for the best flavor!) and then it's time to garnish. Here's how to do it:
1. Using a sliced lime wedge, moisten the rim of the glass.
2. Fill a small saucer with Lime Sea Salt - approximately a 1/4" or so. Roll edges of glass in salt, evenly coating the outside of the rim in salt.
3. Pour margarita into glass and garnish with a slice of lime.
This particular recipe uses Lime Sea Salt, but we have also experimented with Jalapeno Sea Salt, Habanero Sea Salt, and Raspberry Chipotle Sea Salt on the rim. Each adds a bit of heat to the cocktail for those who like a little spice!
