You might have seen all the hooplah we created over Cinco de Mayo already, but today I’m getting into some details! I made colored salt to rim the margarita glasses & it was SO EASY! I was kind of shocked at how quickly I got these done. I love it when a project takes up less time than I planned! Typically, the opposite happens.
Anyhow, these would be fun for any party or fiesta where margaritas make an appearance. Taco Tuesday anyone?
It looks awesome & rainbow like, but also helps keep track of who’s is who’s etc.
Choose how many different colors you’d like to do & grab that many plastic bags. Add 1/4 c kosher salt (more or less is fine) to each bag. Add a few drops of food coloring to each bag & shake, shake, shake till salt is colored evenly. For a brighter color, add more food coloring.
Choose shallow bowls or plates for each color of salt. Slice a lime into quarters & swipe a wedge around the rim of a glass. Place rim of glass in bowl of salt & shake around till covered.
Let them sit pretty until ready for use! Put these in a safe location until you’re ready to use them. I kept bumping them around & loosing salt all over my floor!
PS- You can totally use colored salt for kids crafts too!
Don’t Forget to Pin it for later—>
Because I’m ALWAYS thinking about Christmas, wouldn’t red rims with green margaritas be super cute for Christmas! Or you could color sugar the same way & do red & green sugar for eggnog!
