Do dehydrated garnishes really make a difference to your drink experience?
1. Dehydrated citrus holds aromatics more effectively
When you strip the water out of anything, it usually intensifies the remaining ingredients.
Garnishes are no different. Aroma and taste comes across as a more concentrated &
intensified experience. For the gin & cocktail purists, you can be rest assured that a customer won’t squeeze a wheel or wedge of lemon or lime into their cocktail, throwing out the balance you’ve worked so hard to create.
2. They look beautiful
Ever heard the expression ‘people drink with their eyes’? It’s true – the better your drinks look, the more you will enjoy them.
Again, using citrus as an example, the dehydration process darkens the fruit itself quite significantly. This can provide a dramatic, intriguing contrast against your drinks, allowing you to play with colour combinations created.
3. Practicality & waste reduction
That’s right, instead of cutting and peeling you get to reach, grab, and elegantly place on top. The use of fresh fruit as a drink garnish usually results in waste. It is rare that each individual piece is used and what is left is never quite big enough to juice, or to turn into another garnish.
Dehydrated garnishes are a way of providing a positive path of least resistance, whilst also eliminating waste. They are ready to go as soon as the alcohol and mixer are poured over ice and only require sealed storage to stay fresh for at least 3 months after first being opened.
