Martini glasses with their long and fine bezel are ideal for sugar or salt rims.

Description

Margarita is an all time classic which skyrocketed tequila consumption for many years. It consists of tequila, triple sec, lemon juice and a bit of sugar syrup, a refreshing and palatable cocktail for sunny days. Even if you hardly notice, it's a strong drink with more than 25 % of alcohol.

Lime or lemon juice produces a slightly dulled color and a faintly acid flavor. Of tequila remains only a slight note, it's refined by triple sec and the sourness. You have to add a bit of sugar syrup to achieve the perfect sweet-sour balance.

It's a great choice for parties and nice get-togethers in summer. With hot temperatures, Margarita always goes down well with almost everybody.

Preparation

Method: Shaking with ice cubes

1.

Sugar or salt rim


MargaritaPreparation: Sugar or salt rim

A crusta looks really great and complements Margarita perfectly. With a sugar or salt rim it's best practice to start preparing the glasses before you actually begin mixing the drink.

2.

Lemon decoration


MargaritaPreparation: Lemon decoration

We recommend a lemon or lime wedge for decoration. So, cut off a slice of lemon, make a vertical cut in the middle and place it on the glass rim.

Sugar or salt rim?

Sugar or salt rim, what is your favorite for Margarita?

Do you like sugar rims?

Yes (50%)

No (50%)

Our survey shows that there are some people out there preferring a salt rim and for most of those a sugar rim is not a problem. On the other hand, most of those favoring a sugar crusta don´t like Margarita with a salt rim. Either way, try it out or play safe and serve it with a sugar rim.

It's an American habit to make the crusta only on one half of the rim. Like that you could prepare one half with sugar and the other with salt. Usually with this technique, you leave one half empty that it's possible to drink it without crusta.

In our opinion an entire custa looks better, tastes better and sticks better to the glass. A straw can help for those with an aversion against crustas.

Decoration / Serving

Margarita in a white and red wine glass

Indeed wine glasses look great, but the edge is a bit too short for a long lasting sugar or salt rim.

Margarita, Martini or cocktail glasses are most appropiate for Margarita. Present it with crusta and a slice of lemon.

A good presentation and an adequate environment are as important as the taste of cocktails. Use our decoration tool to test different decorations and glasses.
