Ways to Garnish a Blueberry Martini

Berries make for great garnishes because of how brightly colored they are and the way that they soak up the liquids that they're left in and leave you with a treat to enjoy after you've finished your drink. So, take a look at the many different ways you can garnish a blueberry martini:

  • Citrus twists will offset the light pink coloring of drinks that use fresh blueberries or blueberry juice.
  • A few fresh blueberries bobbing up and down in a martini glass adds a bit of whimsy to the classic drink.
  • You can also skewer a few blueberries and set them delicately on the inside of a glass so that they're not floating about.
  • A smashed blueberry in the center of a glass adds a sophisticated feeling to even the most basic cocktail.
  • There's no harm in adding some extra sweetness to an already sweet fruit, so sugared rims are perfect garnishes for blueberry martinis.

There's No Need to Look So Blue

Don't let the daily blues get you down; make yourself a glass or two of a custom blueberry martini to wash away the stress of a hard day's work. Whether you like your fruit martinis traditional or want to experiment with unusual liqueurs and liquors, there's a blueberry martini recipe out there that you're certain to love.
