  • Always serve your cocktail in oddly shaped glasses so that they look funky. Frost the rim of a cocktail glass by dipping it into a solution of lemon juice and powdered sugar.
  • Decorate your glasses with swizzle sticks, drink umbrellas, straws, or paper flowers.
  • Place cocktail sticks in each drink and fruit slices on the rim of each one.
  • Always use crushed ice. To make this, place the ice cubes in a plastic bag and crush them with a hard object.
