Olives and lemon twists are old hat, compared to some of these suggestions for dirtying up your martini.
A big garlic stuffed olive, or a sun-dried tomato makes a great garnish. A pepperoncini is good in cheap gin, suggests atheorist.
A large sweet English pickled onion will make a special Gibson.
Chowgal goes the pickled vegetable route, with dilly green beans, or pickled okra. Ginger is good too.
For twist of citrus, try orange or grapefruit.
Springs of rosemary or thyme, work well, as do caper berries.
Peeled cucumber, candied orange peel, or watermelon make great garnishes, says talkoftomatoes.
