DIY Holiday Gifts: Spicy, Salty, Sweet Cocktail Rimming Sugar

Julip Made Cocktail Rimming Sugars DIY Holiday Gift The next DIY holiday gift I made is a simple cocktail rimming sugar with a twist... well several twists... Spicy, Sweet, and Salty.  This rimming sugar was created for this cocktail, but pairs well with this one, this one, and this one too!  See after the jump for ingredients, recipe, and more...

  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 teaspoons Chipotle chile pepper

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl or your gift tin.
  2. To rim cocktail glasses take either wet paper towel or citrus wedge and rub around the rim.  Dip the glass in the rimming sugar.
  3. Pour in drink. Enjoy!
**Note I find that using a citrus wedge keeps the sugar in place better than a wet paper towel.

Stay tuned for upcoming gift guides and more DIY holiday gift ideas!
