I don't know why, but before I read what they were I thought those were from mangosteens.

While these aren't exactly the specialty garnishes normally posted here, it was suggested that I upload the garnish for my Big Moai Mai Tai:





Juice of three limes
Juice of one lemon
3 oz Creole Shrub
3 oz Orgeat
1 cup Appleton V/X
1 cup Rhum JM VSOP

Shake with 3 pounds crushed ice and pour. Garnish with Bird of Paradise, leaf attached, Sprig of Jasmine, and a really long straw.

I thought of something new to try out as a garnish - a cookie cutter.

So I got some:



I used a muddler to tap one into a piece of pineapple skin, cut round & voila:



The pineapple skin was a little thick & the garnish may be a little better in a punch bowl but it's something fun to try

This was posted on another garnish thread, thought I would add it here for posterity

I like sweet --not overly sweet--tiki drinks and have been experimenting with these hibiscus flowers in syrup.
They are pretty interesting and can be found at BevMo and I am sure other booze warehouses.

The syrup tastes good in daiquiris and we even made a hibiscus mai tai that was rather awesome.
Just a suggestion!





I tried it out in champagne and they were pretty good, look like baby squids

I thought my flaming skull was fancy, but some of these put it to shame.
