How To Garnish Holiday Cocktails


From mid-September through the holidays, fresh cranberries emerge at their peak offering bold color & fresh taste to an array of our seasonal recipe favorites. Nothing quite beats the distinctive flavor & texture of a freshly prepared Cranberry-Lemon Relish on a plate of traditional Thanksgiving classics but this hardworking fruit is available beyond the typical fall months just waiting for your creativity in the kitchen to take them to new heights. Dried cranberries step in as featured in the Cranberry-Pecan Cornmeal Bread. When they are not available in the produce department & you’re craving them, look to frozen berries that can be substituted for fresh & added to a variety of recipes for a pop of flavor as they are wonderful when used to enhance Crimson Cranberry ‘Cue Sauce & Cranberry-Peach Chutney. Fresh or frozen fruit can be used to prepare game day inspired Apple-Cranberry Turnovers & cranberries add beautiful color to an Apple-Bourbon Herb Roasted Turkey presentation plus make desserts more appealing. When it comes to holiday cocktails, they make lovely garnishes. Learn how to brighten glasses of holiday cheer with a few simple techniques.

 Cranberries grow on vines in wetland areas around North & South America. When it’s time to harvest them, the bogs are flooded & the cranberries float to the surface. By the time the cranberries make their way to your local market, the bold fruit is ready to offer eye-catching color & sweet-tart flavor that compliments a variety of foods, especially during the holidays.

Fresh cranberries can be added to champagne flutes while the sparkling bubbles waltz them about for a lively, fun garnish. For more serious concoctions, drop them into glasses as the bright color will float between the ice cubes or thread them on wooden picks so guests can stir beverages while enjoying them.
