How to Rim a Glass with Salt (or Sugar)

Add a little something extra to your cocktail.

1. Moisten about ½ inch of the glass rim by running a citrus wedge around the outer edge (or by dipping the edge of the glass in a small saucer of water). 

2. Spread ½ cup of kosher salt or sugar (for up to four glasses) into an even layer on a small saucer, and then dip the moistened rim in the salt or sugar to coat.
