Salty-Sweet Citrus Salt for Your Margarita Glass

Feeling like you want to try something a bit different? Go a little wild? Get kinda crazy? Salty-Sweet Citrus Rim Salt is just the thing for your margarita glass.

Salty-Sweet Citrus Rim Salt for Your Margarita Glass

OK, so now we know how to rim our margarita glasses and which type of salt to use. We also have a kick-ass Classic Margarita recipe to pour into that glass. But what if you want to do something a bit different? Go a little wild? Get a little crazy?

This is it! What you do is mix together kosher salt and sugar. Then add lemon and lime zest and rim away all day. Or until you fall over.

If you don’t use up the full batch, no worries. It will keep for a week at room temperature in a sealed container. I hope you love it!
