Use a vegetable peeler to cut a long, thick piece of orange peel. I find it helpful to gently wiggle the peeler back and forth to create long, unbroken peel.

Use a knife to trim the peel into long, narrow strips, about 1/3 inch wide and 5 inches long.

Gently tie the peel into a knot, and trim off the long ends.

Voila! Nestled in the bottom of a coupe glass, ready for the cocktail to be poured.
