Sometimes a glimmer of sugar is just what it takes to transform an already delicious cocktail into an elegant, enchanting delight. One impressive way to achieve this is by garnishing the rim of the serving glass with it.
To add memorable touch beyond just plain sugar, we developed a trio of scented and flavored rim sugars—Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie Spice, and Smoky Chile—that can be used to add a whiff of aroma or a hint of spice, in addition to sweetness, to complement certain cocktails.
These mixtures are nothing more than carefully measured amounts of aromatics combined with sugar; they are quick and easy to make and are great to have on hand in your home bar for whenever the mood strikes to put together some extra-special drinks.
These rim sugars can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 month. Occasionally they can clump together during storage; break up any clumps before using. These recipes can be easily doubled.
