January 1st is National Bloody Mary Day, a cocktail invented in Paris in the Roaring 20’s (here’s the history).

For decades, the garnishes included a lemon wedge and a celery stalk.

But in the recent years of creative mixology, bartenders have added garnishes that amount to a bar snack. We’ve included photos of some of them.

Do you want to create a glamorous garnish?

You may not want to fry onion rings, but here’s a list that’s almost all simply slice, dice and skewer.
