Beer-garitas with Chili-Lime Rimming Salt, Part 2

Welcome back for Beer-garitas with Chili-Lime Salt, Part 2. (Read Part 1 here, if you missed it yesterday.)

Kirst and I firmly believe that rimming your drinks can take a good drink and make it a great one. I mean really, who doesn't love glasses edged with some kind of complimentary flavor? Salt, sugar, vanilla icing with sprinkles? Not to mention it makes it look cool. You get the point.

Now meet our other sister/sister-in-law Jordan.She's beautiful, creative, and great at cooking and pairing what tastes go with what. Here she is with Kirst (she's the one on the left).
So knowing that about her, and our love of rimming salts and sugars, you'll see why when she suggested that we make a Chili-Lime rimming salt for these Beer-garitas, we did it...and we're so glad we did! In fact, we strongly suggest when you make the Beer-garitas from yesterday, you should make this Chili-Lime salt too!

Here's what you'll need:

1/4 c Kosher Salt
1 tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Paprika
1 tbsp lime juice
a couple of lime wedges for rimming

And here's how to do it:

Measure out all the ingredients and dump them into the food processor.
Mix up until it's all combined and all the same texture and consistancy. (It should be a bit sticky looking)

Then, once it's all mixed up, place on a plate or serving dish with several lime wedges and it's ready to go!
Just use the lime wedge to make the rim of the glass sticky, then dip it in the salt.

We paired it with regular salt for the less adventurous, and it was quite the little spread.
Loved by boys and girls alike!

Happy Sipping!
