This summer, step up your rim game
Replace the go-to celery salt with some delicious specialty rims made with everyday items from your pantry. Get creative with Canada’s national cocktail – pull from your favourite dishes and spices and modify to your specific taste. The rim should always be well balanced – salt, spice, and even sugar.
Rims inspired by dishes:
•Sushi – sesame seeds, salt, panko crumbs
•Mediterranean Flat Bread – za’taar spice, salt, chili powder
•Couscous – smoked paprika, cumin, salt
Rims inspired by spices:
•Nori Salt – combine a dry sheet of seaweed or nori from a sushi roll and throw it in a blender for a few sounds. It can be found in the Japanese aisle of your boutique grocer.
•Espelette Salt – combine smoky French peppercorn, ground espelette, and regular salt.
•Truffle Salt – available at boutique grocers.
•Hibiscus Salt – pick up dry hibiscus at your local boutique grocer or food market – simply blend with regular salt.
