Dehydrated Citrus Garnish
Preheat your oven to its lowest temperature (around 200-225 degrees). Thinly slice the citrus of choice (oranges, limes, and blood oranges work great). Place on a lined baking tray and bake for 3-4 hours, flipping every hour, until dry.
Homemade Sugared Rosemary Cocktail Garnish
Combine equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan. Simmer until sugar is dissolved and remove from heat. Dunk rosemary in the simple syrup and remove with a slotted spoon or chopsticks. Set rosemary on a wire rack for one hour (note the rosemary will not completely dry, but remain sticky). Gently coat the rosemary in granulated sugar.
Pomegranate Ice Cubes
Fill your ice cube tray with pomegranate seeds. Gently fill with water and freeze completely.
