Who knew??? It’s National Margarita Day today! I have been waiting and waiting for a day like this to come along because I wanted to share a little tutorial on how to salt or sugar rim a glass. Unfortunately, I can’t actually make a margarita for myself because I gave up alcohol for Lent as a part of my 101 Goals for 2012. So, it’s up to you to rim the glasses and make a toast to me for my brilliant idea!
How To Salt/Sugar Rim a Glass
First off you are going to need two bowls. Fill the bottom of a bowl with margarita salt or some sugar. (For the pictures I used sugar….mmmmm daiquiris.) Fill the bottom of a second bowl with light Karo syrup.
The sweet and salty is a perfect mix for any margarita and of course the sugared rims are great with other fruity mixed drinks.
