What’s a Margarita without a salted rim? Personally there’s nothing more pleasing than the sourness in your mouth, the sting of salt on your lips and the tequila in your bloodstream. Margaritas have fast become my go-to cocktail after a stressful week.
So when Zing and Ocho Tequila create the UK¹s first flavoured salt initiative, the salt flavoured and blended to match with the tequila, I got rather excited. Unfortunately this little launch was in London. Dammit.
Nothing motivates me more on a Monday than an invitation to Margarita tasting in the evening!
Pritesh has worked to create the salt initiative to allows bartenders to a ‘touch of zing’ to classic cocktails, such as the Margarita and offers consumers the opportunity to choose the flavour of the salt rim on their cocktail. Instead of a simple sea salt or even refined salt rim, they can choose from 10 flavours, all made with a base of La Baleine Sea Salt, and range from the floral Hibiscus and Mexican Cactus, through to Coconut & Lime and Applewood Smoked.
Next on our list was the seaweed salt, amazing flavour and would use it on fish but we didn’t like it in combination with tequila.21 April 2015
I am a lover of salt in most foods, however I found the world of Zing salts to be a little too thick and ‘rock salt’ like, which lead to drinking out of the non salted part of the glass, and drinking a lot of water and more Margaritas.
Oops. Sounds like some were a hit and some a miss for Louise. But you know what, I think I’m going to have to have a sample myself. You know, just to be certain.
It’s only fair, right?
