Most bar tools are unnecessary, but I could really get into having one of these channel knives for making a citrus garnish. A cocktail doesn’t look right without a fancy little garnish on the side, but cutting one of those lemon or lime curls with a knife is hard. Seriously, have you tried it? It’s practically impossible.
A channel knife has a u-shaped blade that makes it easy to get a professional looking citrus twist to garnish your cocktail. Prices on these gadgets run from $2 to $25. I like this one for $8 because it also doubles as a citrus zester:
Which is handy to have around for cooking, too.
No posts this Memorial Day, but I’ll be back on Tuesday. Have a great weekend.
