Go the natural route for a garnish with a difference, don't waste
the peel or skin of the fruit you use. Cut the peal into strips
and thread onto small skewers or swizzle sticks. One can use small
cookie cutters to press out interesting shapes. Pare the fruit
carefully and twist peel around spoon handle. Freeze to form a
spiral. This can be done while chilling glasses in the freezer
for an extra frosted effect.
Remember fruit freezes well, especially banana. So when you find
your bananas are over ripe, don't throw them out. Cut into chunks
and freeze in an airtight container. Berries are also freezer
friendly. Frozen fruit gives your smoothie or shake that added
frozen drink quality.
Flowers such as Pansies, Nasturtiums and Primroses can be used to
accompany your favorite drink. They make pretty garnishes. One can
either freeze them into ice cubes or place them on top of the drink
with other cubes of fruit. Just make sure you have correctly
identified the plant and that the flowers have not been sprayed
or treated with any toxic chemicals or insect repelants.
