Rimming a glass can add an extra decorative touch and additional flavor to cocktails. Margaritas are the most common cocktails that use salt on the rim but other drinks can be enhanced with this technique as well. Salt and sugar are usually used to rim a glass but some recipes also work well with powdered sugar or cocoa. If you decide to experiment with rimming different cocktails be sure to choose an appropriate accent to the taste of the drink.

For the purpose of this tutorial I used pink sugar so that you can see the results easier.
