2022 is the year for new cocktails and here at CHIDO… we understood the assignment. Stay Salty Playa is a fizzy lime margarita recipe that is best served with a side of great amigos. This perfectly balanced cocktail will leave your taste buds tingling, and takes the phrase sweet but salty to a whole new level!
Now it’s time to Shake it Up!
Making this drink is a walk on the beach, seriously it’s not rocket science. Just follow this simple recipe, and we promise you'll thank us later.
Just to spice things up we're going to start off this cocktail with a zesty lime salt rim. Measure out 1 tablespoon of sea salt on a small plate. Once that’s done take a lime and a fine grater, and begin zesting about ½ a tsp of lime zest over the top of the sea salt. It’s called class look it up.
Next, you'll mix together the sea salt and lime zest, and then it’s time to prep the glass. Cut the lime you just zested into wedges and make a slit down the center of the wedge. Make sure you but don’t cut through the peel. Then simply put the wedge on your glass and slide it across the entire rim of the glass.
Once that’s all set, pat down your salt & lime zest, and Shaquille O'Neal the rim into the mixture. Just make sure not to break the glass. Your glass should now look something like this! You can set this aside for later and cut up the rest of your limes into wedges for the garnish to come.
Now let’s get to the mixing! Fill up your shaker with ice and measure out 2oz of Tequila, 1oz of Fresh Lime Juice, and 2 tsp of Agave. Slap that lid on top and shake it off like Taylor Swift after a break up.
Alright, stop, collaborate and listen. Take your zesty lime glass, and fill it up with some Ice Ice baby. Bust that strainer on top and pour out the contents into your glass. Anythin’ less than the best is a felony, and we take that seriously when it comes to making our cocktails.
You’re probably not gonna want to hear this, but I’m gonna say it anyway. Club soda toppers are so last year, talk about lame. We’re popping off this new year right with a Sea Salt Margarita topper. Not only does CHIDO perfectly balance out this cocktail but it’s a guaranteed party starter if you know what I mean.
We like to take life with a grain of salt, a wedge of lime, and a shot of tequila. Lucky for us, this drink has all three. Finish it up with a lime wedge on top to stay in good graces, or we might be a bit salty. Now this, is a work of art.
We’re sippin’ the Stay Salty Playa all winter long down here in Florida, where the beaches are going off all year round. We can confirm that’s something to not stay salty about. Give it a try and let us know what you think. With this in mind, don't get salty with us there will be plenty more recipes coming up over the next few weeks!
