TIP OF THE DAY: Veggie Cocktail Garnish

Here’s a creative cocktail garnish idea: a “cocktail kebab.”

Instead of spearing one or two olives or cocktail onions, turn the skewer into a small bite.

For Bloody Marys, Martinis and other savory cocktails, you can use:

  • Pear (a.k.a. grape) tomatoes
  • Pickle chips, gherkins or sliced spears
  • Other pickled vegetables—carrots, cauliflower florets, sliced dilly beans (see our favorite pickled vegetables from Rick’s Picks and Tillen Farms)
  • Red or yellow bell pepper squares
  • Other favorite veggies: baby corn, pickled jalapeño, pickled okra (try Rick’s Picks fab Smokra, smoky pickled okra), water chestnuts
  • Cubes of cheese (or Mozzarella perlini), ham or turkey or a small shrimp
  • Look for 4.5-inch wood or bamboo skewers.

    Find Bloody Mary recipes and other drinks in our Cocktails Section.
