We were peeling blood oranges yesterday when we remembered this cocktail garnish (photo #1) from The Skylark, a cocktail lounge in Midtown Manhattan with panoramic views of the city.

Save the peels after you juice citrus fruits, put them in freezer bags, and you’ll have an instant cocktail garnish for savory or sweet drinks.

We especially like this tricolor peel presentation (we actually eat the peels, too—a tasty nibble).

  • You can also use the peels to garnish soft drinks, iced tea and mineral water.
  • You can serve them on a pick, for easy renewal (and in our case, eating).

    The cocktail in photo #1 is a Pisco Yuzo Apéritif, developed for Earth Day. It has an international theme: pisco from Peru, Lillet from France and yuzu juice from Japan.

    Combine them in a 2:1:1/4 ratio.
