Thirsty Thursday: Ring Around the Rita
Just because the Olympics are over, doesn't mean your cocktail rims have to go back to being bare. With warm weather approaching soon, we're getting ready for margarita season, and there's always more than one way to top your tequila! Pair fruity margaritas with these new sweet and spicy rims, and you'll have yourself enough margarita combinations to last you through spring!
1. Cantaloupe Margarita: Cinnamon & Sugar
Add sugar and spice, and this drink will taste nice! The warm heat of the cinnamon pumps up the mellow taste of the canteloupe.
2. Pineapple Margarita: Old Bay Seasoning & Black Pepper
This savory mixture may seem more at home in a bloody mary than on a margarita rim, but the black pepper and secret spices give the sugary juice a kick!
3. Strawberry Margarita: Cocoa Powder
One taste and you'll swear you're sipping on a chocolate-covered strawberry. How decadent does that sound?!
4. Cranberry Margarita: Sugar & Grated Lime Zest
Pucker up: This pairing starts out sour (thanks to a lime juice rim*), turns sweet, then finishes with a tart, cranberry-filled exclamation point!
*Tip: Dampen the rim with a lime wedge before dipping it into the mixture
