Garnish Like a Pro:
Show the Mint Who’s Boss
Mint is a beautiful garnish and adds a lot to the visual impact of a cocktail. But if you’re putting it in the glass without doing anything else, you’re missing an opportunity.
Take a minute to smack (some say “spank”) the mint between your hands before you use it. This doesn’t affect the visual appeal but releases the oils in the leaves, resulting in a bright and fresh aroma that will really add to the experience of the drink.
