    1. Cut peel from citrus in one continuous strip, a bout 1-inch wide, using a vegetable peeler.

    2. Beginning at one end of the strip, roll peel into a coil to resemble a flower blossom. Secure at bottom with a toothpick to maintain its shape.

    3. Set atop your favorite cocktail or mocktail creation and garnish with additional fresh herbs, if desired.
