Top Problems with Traditional Margarita Rimming Techniques

When bartenders and mixologists make cocktails, they often rim the glass with salt or sugar. When it works, it’s great. The presentation is improved, and the salt or sugar adds a punch of flavor and texture that contrasts with the flavor of the drink.

This is a difficult and time-consuming technique to master. Drink rimming instructions say to moisten the rim of the glass with citrus juice or syrup, turn the glass over and dip it in the desired granules. It sounds simple, but if you’ve ever tried to rim a drink, you know it’s a lot more complicated than it sounds.

It’s messy

Citrus juice and syrups are sticky. Sugar and salt granules refuse to stick evenly to the rim, and what doesn’t adhere to the glass rim, sticks to your countertop, your fingers and your clothes.

It’s time consuming

If you’re only making one kind of drink at your party, you can rim all the glasses in the same substance. But if you want to make different cocktails, it can be difficult to mix and match. You spend a lot of time mixing the ingredients for the perfect drink. It can take twice as long if you have to rim every glass.

Consistency is difficult

Condensation develops on the glass and your ingredients slide off. There’s a big difference between getting sugar to stick to the outside of a martini glass and rimming a mudslide with chocolate sprinkles. The size of the particles changes everything. With practice, you might figure out how to rim glasses perfectly with sea salt, but what if next time table salt is all you have available? You’ll have to start again to avoid over- or under-coating the rim of your glass.

It can be confusing

Some recipes call for a thin liquid like lime juice to serve as the “glue.” Others insist you need something thicker like honey. Some say twist the glass in the substance you’re using to coat, others say that’s absolutely the worst thing you can do.

The good news is, there’s an easy solution: Rita Rims party cups have taken the guess work out of the process by pre-rimming cups in a variety of flavors. Try flavors such as Bloody Mary, salt and lime, sugar and strawberry or a mix of all three. Check out how we can make your next party extra special.

Kick the Holidays Off Right with These Thanksgiving Tips

Thanksgiving is a holiday that’s uniquely American. Not everyone celebrates Christmas and Easter, but almost everyone has something to be thankful for. There’s a lot of pressure to get the meal exactly right, but creating a sense of shared community is what makes the occasion truly special. Here are some simple tips for making your Thanksgiving the signature holiday event of the season.

Make Room for Everyone Together

There’s a long, historic precedent that sharing a meal together bonds people in ways no other tradition can. So rather than landing some people in the dining room, some in the kitchen, and some in the living room, make a way for everyone to eat together. Push back some furniture, make some space, maybe even rent a few tables and chairs if needed. Make it a priority to gather everyone together in one place to share and enjoy the meal together.

Take Charge

No one wants to be seen as bossy or pushy, but more often than not, people appreciate someone willing to bear the responsibility for organizing and thinking through the challenges beforehand. Get a headcount of who will be there – and insist on firm commitments, not vague statements that they will “try to make it.” Make a list of preparations that must be made and manage your time as the day approaches. Consider what dishes you can make beforehand. If the event doesn’t go smoothly or you overlook something important, the evening won’t be as special as possible. Organizing may be an underappreciated way to serve during the holidays, but it provides real value.

Encourage Everyone to Pitch In

Invite guests into the kitchen and give them something to do. Many excellent conversations take place while preparing the meal together. Encourage your guests to go ahead and bring their special dishes. Getting everyone involved creates a sense of shared purpose that bonds people for the day and can reduce tensions. Consider asking guests to bring ingredients to mix some of their favorite drinks. Put guests to work mixing cocktails and make it easy with Rita Rims party cups.
