There are so many ways to garnish mixed drinks, but drinks with salted rims often end up looking bland. Why not learn how to make colored margarita salt
- Margarita salt*
- Food coloring in your preferred color
- Small bowl
- Fork or small whisk
Add one quarter to one half cup of margarita salt to a small bowl.
For every quarter cup of margarita salt, add two drops of food coloring.
Stir with a fork or a small whisk to combine.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 with one drop of food coloring at a time until you achieve your desired color.
- Make sure you are using true margarita salt. The texture of table salt, sea salt, and kosher salt don't adhere to glass rims quite the same way.
- Even if the food coloring appears to be the color you want, you may need to add a drop or so of another color. I found that green food coloring turned the salt turquoise. A single drop of yellow created the perfect shade of green for the holiday season.
