Cucumber Twist Garnishes

Style is about taking risks and being bold — one of the edgiest new trends in cocktail design involves vegetables and savory herbs as key ingredients and garnishes. Cucumbers are ideal because of their strong, contrasting visual appearance and cool, versatile flavor.

  • You’ll Need:
  • Cucumber
  • Standard potato peeler
  • Step 1

    Peel a sliver of cucumber from a whole cucumber and discard.

  • Step 2

    Along the same path, peel again, down the length of the cucumber. You should get a long tongue-shaped peel that has cucumber skin running down the outside and cucumber flesh in the middle.

  • Step 3

    Holding one end of the peel in each hand between thumb and pointer finger, twist the cucumber peel, creating a spiral like garnish.

  • Step 4

    Gently place on top of the drink to be served.
