Salt Air Margarita

Just in time for next week’s Cinco de Mayo celebrations, Eden of “Sugar and Charm is here with a refreshing margarita recipe we can’t wait to try!

“I first tried this unique margarita at a restaurant in Las Vegas, and I was instantly hooked! I asked what was in it, but the only thing that the staff members would tell me was that they used an emulsifier called Sucro. I went home and did some of my own research, and found a recipe published in a Food & Wine cocktail book (and then online!). I was so excited to find out that the recipe is extremely easy! These drinks are different from a standard margarita because—just like the name suggeststhey’re airy and decadent, topped with a light salty foam. They’re also perfect for entertaining, as you won’t have to worry about melting ice or quickly-dissolving foam. For a party, make a large batch and serve on a tray as an arrival cocktail. Cheers!”


 (Makes 1, adapted from Food & Wine)


  • 1 ¼ ounces fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce tequila
  • 1 ¼ ounce triple sec
  • Handful of ice
Salt Air topping:
  • 4 ounces water
  • 2 ounces lime juice
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Sucro (you can buy it here)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt



Combine ice, tequila, triple sec and 1 ¼ of ounce lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Shake well for 20 seconds. Strain into a coupe or martini glass (I swear, it looks so pretty!).
To make the Salt Air topping, combine water, 2 ounces of lime juice, Sucro and salt in a blender. Blend on high until bubbles form. Spoon mixture on top of the margarita.
