Creating a cocktail is just as much about pleasing the eyes as it is pleasing the pallet. Enter our Mini Herb Crystals® & Mini Flower Crystals®, the vibrant colors draw attention and the crystal’s fresh flavors are captivating to the taste buds. The uses are varied and can be incorporated into something as subtle as being a different substitute for plain white sugar, adding a unique sweetness to any drink, or as an eye-catching rim on a cocktail.

The Mini Crystals® are a smaller, more granular than the regular Crystals, making them more adhesive and ideal for rimming cocktail glasses.
