Garnish ideas for absinthe cocktails can be a tricky business as the taste is so unique that not every garnish goes with it. As a rule, the following items are excellent garnish ideas for an absinthe cocktail. Remember you can add more than one to give it a visual boost. Try and keep with the theme of the drink for example if you are using orange juice, then adding orange or orange rind as a garnish is ideal.

Usually any of the green garnishes look incredible such as basil, mint or even parsley can also give the impact that you are after. Here is a more comprehensive list of garnishes that go super well with absinthe cocktails.

You can make the garnish as colorful as you want to, as most colours and textures lend themselves to the vivid green of absinthe. Use a stick and add some pineapple, berries and perhaps a sprig of mint can really make a big impact with drinkers. This gives the drink a more rounded texture and can also add a bit of spice to the drink (particularity if you have used chill!). Try using a daiquari glass which gives you a much bigger rim to decorate. Your guests will be thrilled and you will feel very accomplished.
