Hi, I'm mathilde

Remember the last drink we made, The Revolver? Yeah— that’s our first “Extra”

There was a step in The Revolver that had you ‘flame’ your garnish. What does that mean exactly? Let’s dive into it: A flamed orange peel is a guaranteed head-turner, especially in a dimly lit bar. But beyond the theatrics of igniting a mini fireball with a spray of citrus oil, adding fire to an orange peel can contribute enormously to the aromatic properties of the cocktail, which in turn affects the flavor of the drink. 

Flaming a citrus peel of any kind involves expressing the oils from the skin of the citrus over a drink. The addition of the flame singes the natural oils, adds a hint of smoke. Many use the technique to enhance the flavor of a drink, but it can also be used for simple aesthetic allure.

Check out each slide for a step by step breakdown on how to flame your orange peel garnish.
