One Good Thing: How to Make Flavored Salts That Take Your Cocktails to the Next Level

published Mar 15, 2021

Welcome back! This week on a special episode of One Good Thing, I’ve partnered with Cointreau to share my super simple secret for DIY flavored salts. They can be spicy, savory, or sweet, and they’re perfect on the rim of a cocktail glass or as a unique gift. And they’re so easy to make, even Hands can do it! All you need is a mortar and pestle and your favorite seasonings.

Whatever you use to flavor your salts, it will raise the bar on the Original Margarita. The recipe has been around for more than 70 years, and it’s still made from the same three ingredients: 1 part Cointreau, 2 parts tequila, and 1 part lime juice. Shake them all in a tumbler, and pour over rocks in a glass rimmed in your flavored salts. Cheers!
