When it comes to cocktailing, never forget the garnish. That final touch completes the look and often adds a flourish of flavor. The best garnishes are both easy to construct—you don’t want your drink to be a diluted, watery mess by the time you finish—and drop dead gorgeous. From tropical, tiki-inspired fruit garnishes, to herbal cocktail stirrers, here are the most impressive, easiest cocktail garnishes to make at home.
Garnishing with mini bottles not only gives your drink some adorable flair, but it also adds a tasty hit of extra alcohol as the contents within the bottle slowly work their way into your drink. We recommend using a pony of Miller High Life for a shandy-rific cocktail or a bottle of Underberg Bitters for a biting topper.
