Orange Twist Ingredients

How to make an Orange Twist

  • Cut long, thin orange twists. Express as much oil out of the peel as possible in order to minimise contamination of the ice.
  • Twist into curls and freeze the twists into shape, before placing them into ice moulds.
  • Create a flavoured liquid by combining the bitters and simple syrup to water.
  • Place the cubes in the liquid or pour the liquid over the cubes to submerge and place back in the freezer for 24 hours.
  • Place a single ice cube in a tumbler glass and add 50ml of Ballantine’s 23 Year Old whisky.
  • Take your time to sip and savour. As the ice melts, it will accentuate the wonderful flavours of the whisky.
