The innovative pink shot glasses, which have been designed by the home and barware company Root7, have been crafted from 100 per cent salt to celebrate the national day on July 24.

The creation eliminates the awkwardness of licking salt off your hand before shooting the alcohol, so now all that is needed is a wedge of lime.

As the salt is 100 per cent natural, each and every glass is totally unique, and the pink effect on the item is a natural effect of the product.

The hand carved glasses are reusable, however if the tequila is left in the glass for too long the merchandise can start to dissolve.

The glasses can be purchased from Root7 online from £15 for a set of two and £25 for a set of four.
