Who likes a sugar rimmed cocktail?

I really do not like it when restaurants serve a drink in a cocktail glass and sugar the rim. I know, usually these are sweet drinks, but to me it makes it too sweet. And then your lips get all sticky from the sugar. Then again, I really do not like overly sweet drinks anyways...

The only "rimmed" drink that is okay in my book is the margarita.

A Margarita (salt rimmed) can be good sometimes!!

i do not drink sugary drinks so I would never have occasion to have a sugared rim. I do not like salt on the rim of my margaritas either. The reason I do not like that is after each sip a little bit of salt falls into the drink and sinks to the bottom. When you take that last sip you get a mouthful of very salty margarita. Yuck.

I voted no, although I am unlikely to ever order a drink that would even think of having a sugared rim!

I'm not big on sweet drinks, but I do like the contrast of a sugar rim with a tart drink. I like the sugar on the rare occasion that I have a sweet drink!!!! Nice surprise because I know I always expected it to be salt!

No sugar or salt for me. You might be able to talk me into white or dark chocolate flakes (with raspberries) though.

I don't mind a sugar rim on the right drink. I like an Italian Margarita with a sugared rim. I do not do salted rim on anything - bar salt is just too pronounced and I'd swell up like a Macy's parade balloon .

Just in case anyone wonders, an Italian Margarita is made the same way except substitute Amaretto for the Triple Sec - OMG - it's wonderful and I don't even like Amaretto!!!!!!!!!!!
