Orange Star

Orange Star

Gently peel a wide circle of skin from your orange – or cut a third of the orange and scrape out the flesh and some pith. Leave a bit more pith than usual, for stability. Use a cookie cutter to outline the shape – because stars are definitely much harder than they look. Make a small incision for the star to sit on your glass.

Orange Spiral/Twist

Orange Spiral/Twist

 

Using a vegetable peeler, sharp paring knife, or a zester, peel a strip of orange peel from your orange. It doesn’t need to be too long – about 10cm is fine.

Try to get just the zest – avoid the white pith.  My first attempt was so bad I ended up shaving the excess pith off with a knife, and then cutting the strip with scissors to get a nice neat edge.

Twist the zest over the drink to squeeze a few drops of orange oil in, and rub it around the rim of the glass.

For a large twist, simply wind the twist around your finger. For a tighter spiral, wind it around a skewer and pull tightly, without breaking.

Then simply place on the side of your glass.
