A little spicy, a little sweet, our Ginger Cocktail Rim Sugar is a bar staple in our kitchen. Use it to add a bit of zip to martinis or champagne flute, or rim the edge of your copper cup to add a sweet accent to your Moscow Mule. Try it with a margarita, too (it's fantastic). Not into cocktails? Stir a spoonful into your tea cup to add a ginger note to your tea sweetener. During cold season, we make a batch of this sugar for soothing sore throats with mugs of David's famous Hot Toddy.
The 2.5 oz tin - will rim up to 50 standard martini glasses or champagne flutes, depending on the size of the glass and how much sugar you use. Serving size per glass: 1/4 teaspoon.
The 10 oz bulk bag will rim up to 200 standard martini glasses or champagne flutes. The 20 oz bulk bag will rim up to 400 standard glasses.
TIN SIZE: About 3" x 1". The tins are big enough to dip a champagne flute into, but smaller than a standard martini glass. This is not a martini rimming container. Why? Because with products sold in a martini rimming tin, you end up wasting half of it when the sugar gets gloppy. (That makes us sad.)
HOW TO USE: We include directions with each order. All you need is a plate; a bowl; and something to moisten the rim of your glass. (We recommend using simple syrup. Do not use water only - it will dissolve your sugar.) For step-by-step directions with photos, see our tutorial here.
