Serving ideas by The Good Wife:
1.    Candies, aromatic herbs and infused fruits create a totally memorable cocktail experience. Edible garnishes such as celery stalks, carrot sticks, cherries, olives and lemons have long been popular edible garnishes for cocktails

2.    You can dress up glass rims with custom-flavoured salts, rosemary sprigs with cranberries, fruit juice ice cubes, candied ginger and even matching lollipops which do double duty as a sweet treat and a stirrer

3.    Another twist you can give your serving game is with tea pots and cups. Known as a teapot cocktail, this phenomenon of combining sophisticated afternoon tea paraphernalia with tasty after work drinks is quite popular at The Good Wife

4.    Ice cubes with flowers or buds make for a pretty picture. Simply add edible flowers like lavender, rose petals and jasmine buds to ice trays before freezing. You can also add mint leaves into each cube
