You guys know I love color, so here’s a tip with color! For an impressive yetbeautiful look, place the margarita salt into four plates. Add food coloring to eachplate of salt (i.e. red, yellow, blue, green) and then rim each glass. You will get arainbow of colored glasses with drinks! If you are not a fan of food coloring, youcan do the same with vibrant spices like cayenne pepper for a hot version orcurcuma.
