Some cocktails call for a rimmed edge as garnish (or in addition to a garnish). Rimming is an easy way to add flavor and a nice presentation to cocktails. Let's rim!
If you want to get fancy, or would like to alternate sips with a rimming flavor and sips without, a half dipped rim is a really lovely garnish. Let's make a half-dipped rim!
• If you are having a cocktail party and know you're going to be serving a rimmed cocktail, you can easily prep all your glassware with rims ahead of time. Then you can relax and just shake, pour, serve! • Worried about smudging your newly rimmed glassware with an imperfect pour? Pretend you're a food stylist and use a funnel to assist! Strain your freshly made cocktail into a funnel, carefully positioned into the center of your rimmed serving glassware, then add fresh ice (if needed) and serve!
