Premium gin is renowned for its versatility and ability to create exceptional cocktails. Among the many options to add a delicious twist to your drink, the orange twist stands out as a sublime choice.
The art of crafting a Citrusy Gin Cocktail
The orange twist is a technique that involves squeezing the essential oil from the peel of an orange onto your favourite premium gin. This adds a fresh aroma and a citrusy flavour that completely transforms your glass. But how is it done exactly?
To start, make sure you have the right ingredients: a well-chilled glass of premium gin, a fresh orange, and a citrus peeler. Here are the steps to follow:
- Wash and dry the orange to remove any pesticide residue or dirt.
- Use the citrus peeler to create a long strip of orange zest.
- Twist the zest strip over the rim of your premium gin glass, so that the shiny side of the zest faces downward.
- Gently squeeze the zest strip over the drink, releasing the essential oils onto the gin’s surface.
- Let the orange peel fall gently into the glass, and you’re all set!
The result is a fresh aroma and a touch of orange that enhances the flavour of your premium gin. This simple trick can turn your drink into a truly exquisite experience.

Some of the most popular options include the “Negroni with Orange Twist,” the “Orange Gimlet,” and the “Orange Gin Fizz.” Each of these cocktails combines gin with freshly squeezed orange juice in a unique and delicious way.
