Wine Infused Salts!

1445279660567I recently fell in love with some wine infused salts for both cocktails and finishing foods. I have a slight salt obsession so when I came across these I was sold. Using USA harvested sea salts, Rated M does it right by infusing the sea salts with raspberry wine and all natural flavors.

The cocktail salts are pre-moistened so making cocktails has never been easier and you don’t have to worry about all the salt sliding down your glass. I used the raspberry cocktail salt to IMG_3632rim a fun Daily’s Blood Orange Spiked Soda cocktail I made. This was my improv margarita using the spiked soda, Alacrán tequila, and some lime. The salt added the fruity and salty kick this cocktail needed to take it up another notch.

The finishing salts start with Fleur de Sel Salts from France. These salts are considered the “caviar of the sea”. Then they are mixed with Raspberry Wines and natural flavors to create amazing salts your smell before you taste. Top these on a tomato mozzarella salad for a unique addition to a classic favorite, or finish a nice grilled pork chop with a pinch of this salt to add some dimension to your dish.

Find these wine infused salts in Florida or order on the Rated M online store. These make a great gift for Valentines Day and are fun to have all year round!
