Having a nice garnish on any drink really finishes it off and makes it extra special. In this easy guide, we’ll talk you through the steps of how to make fancy lemon & lime twists, with step by step photos so you can easily add something extra to your cocktail! Up your cocktail game and make all your drinks Instagrammable.
Step 1: Cut a lemon and lime wheel
Cut a lemon and lime in half, and then finely slice a wheel like above. Make sure you don’t cut it too thin as you want to leave some thickness for the twirl.
Step 2: Make a small cut on the edge of the wheel
Grab a knife and create a small slice on the outside wheel. This is so you can easily peel the outside of the skin!
Step 3: Cut round the fruit to peel the skin!
Start peeling away the fruit skin from the fruit itself. Use a knife to carefully separate.
Step 4: Now you have your skin it’s time to start twirling!
Your skin should look like this! You can either twist the skin with your hands or twist it round a straw to create desired shape.
Step 5: Ready to serve in a nice cocktail!
And it’s done! It’s super easy to do and will make any cocktail stand out from the crowd!
We hope you enjoyed this step by step guide on how to create your own fabulous cocktail garnishes! You can see how we used an orange twist in this cocktail here.
