How to make an orange twist for your cocktails.

How to make an orange twist?

To make an orange twist, you will need an orange and a sharp knife. Follow these steps:

  1. Wash and dry the orange to make sure it is clean.
  2. Cut the orange in half and then cut a section of the orange peel with a sharp knife. Make sure to cut only the orange peel and not the white part underneath, as the white part can be bitter.
  3. Take the section of orange peel and place it on the cutting board, with the peel facing down. With the knife, cut the peel in a spiral, making a zigzag cut that goes from one end to the other of the peel.
  4. Fold the spiral of orange peel in the middle to form a twist. Squeeze the spiral of orange peel lightly over the drink to release the essential oils of the peel and obtain an intense aroma and flavor.

There you go! Now you have an orange twist to add to your cocktails and give them a special touch.
