What’s the best way to rim a margarita glass with salt? Take two shallow dishes and fill one with lime juice and the other with sea salt. Dip the rim of the glass in the juice and then immediately dip it in the salt.
Can you substitute lemons for limes in a margarita? Limes are better, but, if you don’t have any, try Meyer lemons instead of standard lemons. They’re a little sweeter and less sour.
