If you want to keep it easy, light and refreshing, use zesty lemon, lime and orange slices. For a fruity twist, thinly slice a piece of citrus fruit and fold in half. Skewer one end with the cocktail stick, skewer your berry of choice and secure by threading through the opposite end of the citrus slice. The finished garnish makes an excellent addition to a floral white port and tonic.
If you’re mixing cocktails for a loved one, try your hand at a cupid’s heart. Pare off a strip of citrus peel, then trim and neaten the edges before splitting down the middle for three-quarters of its length. Arch the ends towards each other; secure all the way through with a cocktail stick and garnish this pretty-in-pink Red Grapefruit Sgroppino before serving.
Or keep it simple with a classic twist. Pare citrus peel and slice into thin strips before wrapping around a clean pencil, then squeeze to shape. Slice off the end and add to a cocktail of your choice.
