We’ve seen lemons, we’ve seen limes, we’ve seen olives. Let’s face it, there are much cooler ways to garnish your summer cocktail than the norm. Don’t settle for average, step out of your comfort zone and try one of these five creative and aesthetically pleasing garnishes.
5. Gummy Bears
These sweet little gummy bears are not only cute and colorful, they also pack a punch of fruity flavor. Put some on a toothpick and lay across the top of your cosmo or other fruity vodka based drink. This little garnish will get your friends talking!
This gives the Margarona (margarita + corona) a run for its money! Fill glass with some champagne and then stick a fruity popsicle in the glass upside down. Not only will it melt and make the drink look really pretty, it will also add a fruity flavor to the drink. Mimosas anyone?
3. Blueberry Skewers
Skewer blueberries so that they become a long blueberry stirrer. These look amazing (and are also functional stirrers) in a mojito or any other fruity cocktail. You’re welcome.
2. Orange slice with cinnamon
You don’t have to give up orange slices all together if you’re trying to spice up your garnish game. Just simply add some cinnamon. Not only does the presentation score go from a 3 to a 9, it also tastes amazing!
1. Halved Figs
Cut a fig in half and drop it into a drink like champagne. This is a fruit we don’t see enough of, and it’s inner beauty is almost as beautiful as it tastes.
