Using Margarita Salt: Frequently Asked Questions
Since many people (me!) are new to doing their own margarita rimming, there are quite a few questions you may be asking about margarita salt. Allow us to answer those for you, since I was wondering the very same questions posed below. :)
How much margarita salt will I receive?
Each margarita salt will rim at least fifty standard margarita glasses, depending on the glass and thickness of the glass rim.
How much salt should I use to rim each glass?
I like a LOT of margarita salt on my drink (the saltier, the better!) but it is recommended to use 1/4 tsp salt per glass. If you want to use more, go for it, but order extra tins of margarita salt just in case. You wouldn’t want to run out!
Do I use the tin for rimming directly?
No, these tins are food-grade and are used for storing the margarita salt. Instead, you’ll want to rim the glasses on a plate or bowl so your salt won’t get gloppy or melt.
How does rimming salt stay on the glass? Does it stick to plastic?
Magic! And yes! Just kidding on the magic. Actually, lime juice makes rimming salt stick. It is easier for margarita salt (not table salt) to stick to glassware (like margarita glasses), but contrary to popular believe you can actually make margarita salt stick to plasticware.
To rim your glass, simply dip the rim of the glass in lime juice (I’ve had good luck with this brand) on a saucer and dip it in the margarita salt on another saucer. Turn the glass slightly in the rimming salt and, voila! It sticks! The lime juice gives the margarita salt a little extra kick, too.
Where can I buy spicy margarita salt?
Lately I’ve been hearing about spicy margarita salt on margs for an added kick. I’ve yet to try them, but always up for a challenge, so I found some kick-worthy spicy margarita salt here. It’s made with green chile and lime. According to the shop, this is the perfect spicy margarita salt, thanks to its addictive heat of the chilis, tang of the fresh lime, and infusion of all natural sea salt. YUM!
How long does the margarita salt last?
The average shelf life of this salt is 2-years. Each tin contains 3 oz. of salt.
Where is the margarita salt made?
This margarita salt is proudly handmade in the USA!
Are there rimming instructions included with my salt?
Yes! If you’re still not feeling confident in your salt rimming abilities, fear not. Your margarita salt will arrive with easy-to-follow instructions on how to rim with margarita salt. You’ve got this!
Here are some examples of the rimming salt colors available.
Where can I buy margarita glasses?
The traditional margarita glasses (made of actual glass) are available at nearly any store. I’ve seen them on shelves at Target, Walmart, et.al. Usually you’ll find a pack of four like this for about $20. Alternatively, you can find a 12-pack of margarita glasses like these. I have this brand of margarita glasses in a four-pack, and they’ve lasted pretty well and have a great feel to them. For at home entertaining, your best bet is this pitcher and glasses set which comes with a margarita pitcher and set of six 9 oz. margarita glasses.
You can buy this pitcher and glasses set here.
Want colorful margarita glasses? These are fun! Made of real glass. Via here.
Want to buy plastic margarita glasses? If you’re having a margarita bar at your wedding or have a huge crowd coming to your margarita bachelorette bash, you’re going to want to go with bulk (+ cheap!) plastic margarita glasses. As mentioned earlier, yes, you can use salt on the rim of plastic glasses. However, you need to use the real sea salt (in the examples above) and not table salt (it doesn’t stick as well).
These plastic margarita glasses are available in a bulk 20 pack for cheap! Buy them here. These are 8 oz. sized. Be careful when looking for cheaper ones (these are the best quality we’ve found for the most affordable price) because the only alternative is a “mini” margarita glass that holds 2 oz. It will require you to use too much margarita salt for each drink and you’ll fly through supplies.
Want a little pop of color? These plastic margarita glasses are made of fun neon colors. Great for a fiesta themed wedding or bridal shower.
We love giving you many options, so here’s two more: bright green plastic margarita glasses, along with blue glasses. Both are available from here.
What is the best margarita mix to use? Where can I buy a margarita machine?
And last but not least, the best margarita salt deserves to only be used with the best ingredients! The most delicious margarita starts with the best margarita mix. Here are the best margarita mix options (with bulk ordering options to save you money); Margaritaville is top pick! (Note: you’ll obviously add your tequila, as these all come with just the flavoring. This is fun to use solo for mocktails! Just as delicious.)

Where to Buy a Frozen Margarita Machine?
When we got married, Andrew and I added the this frozen margarita machine to our wedding registry and IT IS AWESOME. (Make your registry here and add a margarita machine to it, stat!)
With this frozen margarita maker, simply add your favorite margarita mix, ice cubes, tequila, and push the button. It turns your ingredients into the most perfect margaritas ever. Ever, ever. I am so happy to have this because it’s great for entertaining! Of course, you can also make your own margarita on the rocks, but I think the frozen margaritas just taste better. Plus, as a bonus, you can make all kinds of icy drinks (mocktails, too!) from frozen mojitos to dacquiris.
Then, you know the rest: rim those margarita glasses with margarita salt! That’s the most important step, as the margarita salt really ties the whole drink together! You can buy your margarita salt here. Dell Cove Spices & More is a Featured Artist in The Marketplace at Emmaline Bride. Patricia and David are amazing to work with, you’ll love ordering from them!
