Salt and sugar rimmers have been used to decorate glasses for various cocktails with beautiful glistening crystals. They add an aesthetic and an extra flavor to complete the drink. It’s made of a plastic material with a compact design that is easy to store.
Salt vs. Sugar
Salt counters the bitterness and the sourness of the drink. Drinks like margarita and sidecars are made of strong alcohol and citrus flavors. The salt adds a good offset for the acidity and sharpness.
Sugar adds sweetness to the drink; this works great for fruity or bitter cocktails. It also creates a frosted look for aesthetics. You can create drinks like cosmopolitans and strawberry bellinis since the sugar rim will enhance the fruity taste.
How to Use a Salt Rimmer
A salt/ sugar rimmer comes with at least two compartments: lime juice and salt. The lime juice compartment comes with a sponge to absorb the liquids. This is used to wet the rim and become an adhesive for salt or sugar.
You can also use honey as an adhesive if you don’t like the bitterness of lime. After coating the rim, just place the glass on top of the salt and twist it back and forth to get an even coating.
Other Ingredients You Can Use to Rim Your Glass
Crushed candy has been used to rim glasses for candy-based cocktails. You can use honey or melted marshmallows as an adhesive for your crushed candy since lemon and lime juice may not be as effective. Holiday or candy-themed drinks like cotton candy margaritas will get extra sweet with a candied rim.
There are certain drinks that include spices to add a bit of a kick. Micheladas are one of those spicy drinks. It’s a popular drink in Mexico that consists of beer, tomato juice, spices, and lime juice. The rim is coated with chili and salt powder to add to the overall heat.
