Question: Why do they put salt around the rim of a margarita?
I never understood why..

So thanks in advance. (;


It's to mix the sweet taste of a margarita with the bitterness of the salt so you get a tart taste. In lament terms to make it taste good.


it tastes good. kinda like salt and lime in a nasty corona. but its definitely better in those slushie alc. drinks.

Because it is the way one drinks a margarita
