Margarita glasses have a very specific purpose—they are designed to hold margaritas and margaritas only. The style, with the wide brim and tall, thin stem, is an immediate indication, not to mention the occasional cactus-themed cups out there. Serve your margaritas in style and choose a set of plastic margarita glasses.
It is probably not far from the truth to suggest that hole-in-the-wall ethnic restaurants often have the best food around. The size, location, and even ambience of a restaurant may have very little to do with the quality of the food; however, hole-in-the-wall restaurants are not always known for their expensive glassware or fancy dishes. Hence, you may have tried a restaurant or bar in which your tapas or entrée came with a margarita in a plastic margarita glass. Chances are that the margarita was still just as tasty as it would be if it were served in a real glass.
The biggest challenge with a plastic margarita glass is probably the fact that the salt does not remain on the rim quite as well as on the glass version. However, this can be remedied by adding a sticker substance to the lime juice, such as a dash of simple syrup or orange liqueur. This will make the salt or sugar stick better; enhancing the margarita even more after it is served.
Additionally, margarita glasses are usually fairly large and hard to carry. With wide brims and thin stems, they are just asking to be clinked together and broken. Plastic margarita glasses cut down on the chances that they will crack or shatter, giving managers, bartenders and wait staff more peace of mind. This selection of plastic barware will certainly help you serve delicious margarita with ease.
