With drinks like the margarita, bartenders are encouraged to rim the glass with salt or sugar. The easiest way to do this is to fi rst rub a lime or lemon across the rim of the glass. Then, you should set the glass rim-down in a plate of salt or sugar and twist the glass until the rim has been submerged about an eight of an inch into the salt or sugar. When you life the glass out, it should have a thick coating of either salt or sugar.

In the second last sentense, does "eight of an inch" means 8/10(4/5) inch?

Thanks !!

1/8 of an inch Apr 30, 2008

Divide an inch by 8 and you get it. (about 3.1mm - in metric system)
