In our ever so visual world, it is of the utmost importance that your cocktails look just as delicious as they taste. We’d never judge a book by it’s cover, but cocktails… that's a whole different story.
So, dress it up! It’s never too late to add the finishing touches to create the picture perfect cocktail. We know what you might be thinking... It takes too much time to browse the Web to find the perfect cocktail garnishes. Well, don’t worry another second–we’ve gathered a few of our favorite and easiest garnish ideas right here!
1.) Citrus Wheels
Citrus wheels are a tale as old as time. It's a classic style that will add flair to any cocktail. It’s simple: use a knife to cut your citrus (we recommend lemon or lime) fruit into circular slices; cut a slit from the middle of the wheel to the peel; place it on the edge of your glass… and voila! Wheel those cocktails on out!
2.) Infused Salt
Want an extra pinch of flavor in every sip? Try an infused salt! Simply mix together zest from the peel of your desired fruit (orange, lime, or lemon work best) and mix it with salt in a plate. Use the juice from the fruit to moisten the rim of your glass, and then dip the rim of your glass into the plate of infused salt!
3.) Edible Flowers
Who says flowers weren’t meant to be eaten? Fresh, edible flowers add color and energy to every drink. Head to your nearest gourmet grocer and buy some edible flowers to sprinkle on the top of your drink. Perfect for summer!
4.) Herb Infused Ice Cubes
Keep your drinks icy fresh with a few herb infused ice cubes! This garnish is super easy as all it takes is an herb (we recommend mint) and water. Take an ice cube tray and add a leaf to every cube compartment, and then add water. Leave it to freeze and pop them out when they’re ready! Instant class.
