Decoration / Serving

Different Gin Sour decorations

There are many good options to present Gin-Sour.

Tumbler glasses are most appropriate for Gin-Sour. Martini glasses or cocktail saucers are eye-catching alternatives. A cocktail cherry belongs into the glass. Further decorations of lemon or orange are quite popular but it's not a requirement.

A good presentation and an adequate environment are as important as the taste of cocktails. Use our decoration tool to test different decorations and glasses.
