Salting the Rim of a Margarita Glass

Properly salting the rim of a Margarita glass is critical to a good drink. Add too much salt and your drink is ruined. Here is a trick to getting it right.

  1. Fold a thin round of lime and rub it around the rim of the glass.
  2. Add kosher salt to a small plate.
  3. Turn the rim of the glass on the plate to coat with salt.
  4. Pour in your Margarita

For a prettier version use salt mixed with lime zest to add speckles of green.
