Cherry Garni Socks
Okay, these should really, technically, be called ‘Cherry Garnish Socks’, as ‘garni’ isn’t French for garnish at all, but is only an attempt on my part to sound fancy! I am nothing if not creative in the ways of language! Or lazy. Either or, the cherry is a massive part of cocktail dressing, and this pattern is a natural progression from the Twist of Citrus homage to all things zesty in cocktail world!
So, whether you’re adding a rich red Maraschino cherry to a Manhattan, a green cherry to your Blue Lagoon, drinking a black cherry Mojito, or having your tequila sunrise adorned with a yellow ground cherry, I’m sure you’ll agree that the cherry, no matter what colour, is truly a worthy addition to the cocktail sock theme!
The Cherry Garni is a toe-up, heel-flapped, cherry-lace sock, with contrasting cocktail-skewer toe, heel and cuff.
