Mix some salt with zest of a lime in a shallow plate. Using a lime wedge wet the edges of your margarita glass. Rim the edges with salt-lime zest mixture.
Alternatively, you can use sugar and lime zest. However, I personally think that with the addition of champagne it is already sweet enough and therefore salt balances it out in a better way. Still, it is up to you.

    • Aysegul Sanford - Thank you Lynn.. I agree, this would be a perfect dessert.
      I agree with the photo essay.. I was thinking about a creative way of photographing it and this idea came about as I was making the drink. It wasn’t planned at all. Luckily, the light cooperated as well. I love how it turned out.
      I plan to do more of these. Thank you so much for your input. 🙂ReplyCancel
