Expert Tips

Chill Glasses – Put cocktail glasses in the freezer for 1+ hours to chill them. This will help avoid the watery rim the occurs around the edges of the glass. 

Crushed Ice – If you have easy access to crushed ice, use it! It is much easier on your blender and makes smooth, thick margaritas with ease!

Mango Garnish – Thawed mango holds its textured and shape much better than other frozen fruits. So, if you want to add a “fresh” mango garnish, thaw a few pieces of frozen mango and use that!

What kind of sugar do you use to rim a glass?
