A fan is a great strawberry garnish on glass if we attach it to a skewer on the bottom of the berry. Fanning a strawberry technique is an easy and impressive strawberry garnish for many drinks.

I have mint available all year round in my mini garden. Mint leaves pleasant and edible garnish by itself and makes a great parring with strawberry.

           The fanning a strawberry technique is so easy! Remove the leaves from the strawberry or leave on, it is up to you. Make vertical cuts, but not all way through.
