Twist

By

(n.) Citrus zest twisted over a drink to express the oils and dropped in as garnish. Twists are sometimes rubbed along the rim of the glass for added flavor. They can be made in various shapes, such as a spiral or the ornate “Horse’s Neck.” Some recipes call for flaming a twist to release the oil and add a flare of pyrotechnics to the presentation (see Flame).
