that light-the-rind-on-fire cocktail trick? who knows how?

french roast | Dec 9, 2006 11:30 PM

I recently read a drink recipie that called for a final twist--a piece of orange rind (about a quarter of an orange) somehow twisted to get the rind oil out, then lit with a match to impart a magical burnt orange flavor to a coctail. Well, without pictures, I followed the directions the best I could, and only wound up with burned fingers and a soggy piece of orange rind. (Not to mention a less than impressed audience!) Does anyone know what I'm talking about, or know where a video and/or decent instructions exist to accomplish such a feat? I'd love to redeem myself at Christmas dinner...
