Frosting your glass
This is a simple technique which will give a "chique" look to all your cocktails!
To do this, pour lemon juice into a bowl and some granulated sugar onto a small plate. Wet the rim of each glass in the lemon juice and then dip it in the sugar. Some classic cocktails like Margaritas require the traditional "sugared" frosting to be replaced with salt. Remember also to substitute lemon with a syrup, or coloured liqueur for a colourful frosting. For the more creative amongst you, you can also use cocoa powder, or powdered coconut in place of sugar.
