Top Rated Recipes with a Garnish

Recipes garnished to add a visual flourish or enhance the aroma

LongExplanation
Cocktails are often garnished with a piece of citrus fruit but the choice of garnish is limited only by the bartenders imagination.  Garnishes are used to enhance the visual appeal of a drink and to intensify the aroma.  Common garnishes include citrus peel, citrus wheels, edible flowers and grated spices such as nutmeg.
Method
Citrus Peel Garnish:
1. Using a knife carefully remove a slice of peel from the citrus fruit about the size of your thumb.
2. Twist the peel over the top of the drink to release it's oils.
3. Either drop the peel into the drink or cut a small incision into it and fix it to the rim of the glass.
