Glossary of Terms

In cocktail terminology, to rim means coating the rim of a cocktail glass in salt or sugar. The process involves moistening the rim of the glass with citrus juice and then twisting the rim of the glass in salt or sugar before pouring the cocktail. Often a specialist bar tool called a glass rimmer or salt rimmer is used to make the process easier.
