How to Garnish with Citrus Zest

Get festive with a cocktail garnish!

For a citrus zest twist, use a citrus zester/channel knife to remove a 3- to 4-inch strand of citrus peel, working around the circumference of the fruit in a spiral pattern to ensure a continuous piece.

Curl the strand tightly to establish a uniform twist, and then place it directly in the cocktail or on the edge of the glass.
