Ways to Garnish a Strawberry Margarita Mocktail

If you've got an artistic itch you can't scratch, give one of these cocktail garnishes a try. Even those without an artistic bone in their body can toss a piece of fresh fruit onto their finished mocktail to create an easy, and impressive-looking, drink.

  • Take vertical bisections of a few large strawberries so that they show the interior of the strawberries on both sides, and have the leaves still on top, dropping them into the margarita to garnish.
  • Coat the rim in sugar or salt depending on your personal tastes.
  • Drizzle some strawberry sauce on the inside of your margarita glass before you pour in your strawberry 'rita.
  • Make a strawberry flower by using a straw to take out the center and stem, and then using a paring knife gently cut 'petals' into the strawberry in a circular fashion, never cutting entirely through the fruit. Place on top of your finished drink.
  • Spear a strawberry or lime wedge onto the rim of your margarita glass for a classic garnish.
