Day 4 – Martini with a twist

Ok, I know this is a simple one, but I really enjoyed this.

So I love a vodka martini. So dry, so cool, so easy to make. I normally forego the traditional olive for a lemon slice, but today I decided to zhush it up a bit with a lemon twist, and yes, I had to check how to spell zhush.

Not my actual martini, but one James made last year. My inspiration.

You basically take a slice of lemon, cut into one side of the peel, and cut around the fruit and pulp until you have one long section of peel. Then twist. It’s that simple. Now I’ve revealed the trick it doesn’t seem as magical does it? I will absolutely be putting them in all of my drinks from now on. As for the waste, I’m freezing all my lemons and have big plans to use them for a future new project. Surprise!
