Creative Cocktail Garnish Ideas

Herb and cocktail pairing ideas made easy!



We here at Catalyst Tea Company have been collecting some fantastic cocktail-garnishing ideas, and now is the perfect time to share them! We all know that it's the mint that elevates the mojito. However, there is a wide array of herbs and edible flowers that, when utilized correctly, heighten the appeal of even the most simplest of drinks.


Color Theory

A good rule of thumb, to begin with, is esthetics and flavor matching. Does your pairing look pleasing to the eye? And also, do the flavors complement each other? A rosé, served in a nice glass and sprinkled with a few dried rose petals, instantly becomes more interesting.




Versatile Herbs

When just starting out your experimentation with herbal garnishes, stick to herbs such as lavender, and mint. Lavender lends a refreshing floral note to any cocktail without creating an overpowering aroma. Mint is also a safe choice, and will add a cooling effect to your drinks.


Bolder Tastes

Herbal additives such as rosemary, ginger, and cinnamon; when used as a garnish, will not only look amazingly creative, but they will also alter the flavor of the beverage as well. So, take care not to be too heavy-handed when garnishing your cocktails with these herbs.
