We decided to get "dressed up" a bit with our new Sal de Cocktail hand-embroidered bag. And what better time than at New Year's?
It's the same salt from the Sea of Cortez that is dried by the wind and sun and hand-harvested. The taste is ideal for food or for cocktails whether it is a Margarita, Salty Dog, or a Bloody Mary because the taste of the Sal de Cocktail-rimmed glass enhances the flavors in any cocktail.
We wanted a sophisticated look so we choose a grey linen fabric and a white on white embroidered design, using sea horses holding a shell as our new label (we patterned it after sophisticated liquor labels).
They make a great gift anytime of year. Bon Boutique in Tucson made up gift package of Sal de Cocktail and a shallow crystal bowl for dipping the salt, tied with a simple twine bow.
We always salt the rim of our cocktail glasses in advance of the party so they have a chance for the salt to crust a bit....and so the salt doesn't drip down into the cocktail. Another tip: just salt half the rim so that the guests can have salt or not. I guarantee that even "non-salt people" will like Sal de Cocktail.
We wish you and yours a happy, healthy 2015! We value you as customers and as friends and thank you for your support. It is because of you that our embroiders are able to help sustain their families.
PS: We still have all of our other Sal del Mar and Sal de Cocktail designs available. Our new linen bag is another design to choose from!
