Cocktail Garnish Ideas
Before we get into these beautiful virgin cocktails, let’s talk about drink garnishes. A cocktail garnish can transform your cocktail from a regular smegular drink to a fancy at home mocktail. You do not have to go out an buy a ton of fancy things or expensive items. Instead you want to focus on cocktail garnishes that make sense. Here are a few tips for garnishing your drinks.
Cocktail Garnish Tips
- Use edible garnishes. No one wants inedible items on their plate and the same sentiment goes for your drinks. Edible garnishes are the best! Not only can these add to the visual interest of the cocktail by adding color and texture, an edible garnish can add flavor and aroma.
- Use garnishes that make sense and compliment the drink. This one seems like it would be common sense but it can be easy to get caught up in the hubbub of mocktail making and make a mistake like this. Consider the flavors of the drink. Then use the flavors to decide what garnishes to add.
Best Cocktail Garnish
Here are a few of my favorite drink garnishes to use for mocktails.
- Edible Flowers
- Orange Peels
- Fresh Fruit
- Fruit Wedges
- Cocktail Cherries
- Dehydrated Fruits
- Cucumber Ribbons
Fancy Ice Cube Trays
2022 brought us a lot of wild and crazy things. Unique ice trays were one of the best! I must admit that I absolutely love this trend! I hope it is here to stay.

Everything from giant square ice cubes that are so large that you only need 1 per glass to cute little perfectly round ice cubes… I’m loving it all. Below are a few of my favorite fancy ice cube trays. (I have to let you know if you click the link and make a purchase, I will make a small percentage.)

I made this recipe a few weeks ago, and I fell in love! It’s the perfect combination of sweet lemonade and tangy ginger. Not only is it delicious, but it can be used as a detox or base for a virgin cocktail. Here is the full recipe.
Non Alcoholic Sangria
Sangria is the quintessential drink for social drinkers. Growing up, my parents didn’t drink so the only drink I ever knew of was sangrias (thank you mid-week sitcoms). Once I was of drinking age, the first drink I ordered was a sangria. Turns out, I’m more of a tequila or champagne girl, but I still know plenty of ladies who enjoy a delicious sangria. So this one is for them. Next time you want a sweet drink, try this nonalcoholic sangria.
