Salt shot glasses are a delicious way to enjoy your favorite drinks without having to add any extra salt. The glasses are made of a hardened salt that dissolves into the glass when filled with liquid. They get saltier the longer you let them sit, so make sure to chase that drink down quick! The salt adds another layer to the drink, changing the taste and making the experience even more fun. Here are a few recipes you can use for your salt shot glass.
Tequila and lime
All you need for this is 1oz of Tequila, a lime wedge, and some courage. Drink it down then chase it by sucking on the lime wedge. There’s no need for any extra salt here. This is an easy and delicious way to enjoy Tequila shots.
Try this bold drink—it’s 1.5oz Vodka, .75 Triple Sec, and .75 of lime. Swish it around once or twice and then down it. You’ve just completed your Kamikaze mission.
If you like your drink to be both salty and sweet at the same time, this is a perfect one for you. This drink is really powerful and the recipe is enough for two or three people, so be cautious.

Mix it, strain it, and drain it into a chilled salt shot glass for a drink that’s truly thrilling.
Salted Caramel Apple
Again, for those who love the combination of salty and sweet—this one is a serious winner! 3/4 oz Butterscotch Schnapps, 1oz Sour Pucker Schnapps—mix in a shaker with ice and serve in a chilled salt shot glass.
