Vibrant Backdrop

Another hack to make your uncomplicated drink presentable is to capture it against a very well-thought backdrop. When you make a drink with tropical ingredients, it’s always a great opportunity to create a backdrop with fruit slices or wedges scattered around  the glass to make it appealing. Another useful trick when you are sharing a vibrant, colourful cocktail is to go with a subdued background so the colours in the drink pop out.

Cherries And Orange Peel Skewer

One more garnishing trick that highlights your drink is a clever skewer made out of cherries or raspberries intertwined in an orange peel. With this skewer placed artistically atop a tripole cocktail full of cognac and bitters, it will make the drink look all the more dignified and add a bit of elegance to your Instagram game. You can also dabble with other ingredients like blackberries and rosemary sprigs according to the colours and flavours in your cocktail.

Grilled Fruit Garnishes

When you are making smoked or grilled cocktails, that is simple drinks containing char grilled fruit juices, a brilliant way to garnish them is to have these fruits sit atop the drink. You can use grapefruit slices or lime wedges grilled on your barbecue or simply use a smoke gun to give the fruits some intense notes. Click pictures while the fruits are still smouldering so you manage to catch the vapours oozing out.

Glassware Supreme

One of the most important ways you can make your drink thoroughly Instagrammable is by pouring it in the right glass that throws off its colours in flattering ways. You can use a Glencairn or rocks glass to show off a whisky cocktail. And when it comes to wines, have long stemmed glasses handy to make the colours of a Singleton Plus Two pop bright or the bubbles in your mimosas to shine proud. 

Sugar And Spice

Craft crusta cocktails out of three ingredients, basically cocktails with a sugar rim that would stand class apart due to their elegance and sophistication. You can photograph the sugar rimmed glasses when they are used for dark coloured cocktails because the white sweetener will stand out against the deep hue. Another secret ingredient to elevate your garnish game is spices. Cinnamon sticks and a whole star anise look really cute when they adorn cocktail glasses so you can use them especially in festive drinks for their photogenic attributes.
