    Where can a person find Bloody Mary rim salt in Des Moines??

    I've gotten spoiled by my father-in-law's Bloody Mary's. He buys the Bloody Mary rim salt and thus lines the lip of the glass (with the help of lemon juice) with it when he makes Bloody Mary's. I've always been a big Bloody Mary fan, but this really gives it a nice added taste. Now I'm hooked.

    The problem. I've been to three liquor stores (Central Liquors, Urban, and the Hy-Vee on MLK) in town and have yet to find it. I was in Clear Lake this past weekend, and struck out there as well. The stores seem to have the containers/tins of Margarita salts and some of the Martini sugars, but not Bloody Mary salt. I can find it online, but would just as soon find it here in Des Moines given it is hard to justify paying postage for such an inexpensive item.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Side comment. How many like their Bloody Mary's with a beer chaser? I think this is more of a northern Iowa/Minnesota thing, but I'm not sure. I'm just going on experience in that I've been in Minnesota and ordered a Bloody Mary, and gotten the beer chaser without even asking for it. You can get one in DSM, but you always have to ask.

    Just to answer the obvious question -- my father-in-law can't recall where he bought his Bloody Mary salt , so that is a dead-end.

    Not a bad substitute if you're in a pinch, but that is amateur hour IMO.

    The rimmers have multiple seasonings in addition to celery salt.

    I'm getting the feeling I'm not going to get a lot of help here.

    Combine Sea Salt with whatever floats yer boat.....Paprika, Garlic, Cheyenne, Celery Salt, Star Anise....

    Whatever you would use as a rub on a lesser cut of beef to kick it up a notch would work...and be way cheaper than anything you could get out of a can/box/bag...plus it would be all yours.

    Again, this is not a one ingrediate rimmer. I'm happy for you that you like the sea salt or that maybe celery salt by itself trips your trigger.

    This is what I'm looking for:

    Wildly Delicious _ Twilight Cocktail Cocktail Mixes & Glass Rimmers

    Now that I've been a smart-A, I see the website lists a store locator. Never heard of this place, but can't be too hard to find:


    Retailer Store Infomation - Honey Sweet Gourmet Foods 409 Maple St , West Des Moines , IA , 50265
    Different brand then what I've seen in the past, but looks worthy of checking out.

    I like my Bloody Mary's with a Bloody Mary chaser. That's all I can participate in this thread, my mouth is watering for tailgating season. Bloody Mary's are the best part of morning games.
