MBartender: The MB's Moustache Guide to Lemon Twists

MBartender: The MB's Moustache Guide to Lemon Twists
A well-placed lemon twist is the MB's garnish of choice for a martini and many other cocktails. [See our complete cocktails channel.] Lately we've seen a growing trend of rather bizarre looking ones being floated our way. Here's a simple, yet accurate guide to ensure you're going classic with your twist.

Way Too Wide
"Waiter, there's a toupee floating in my drink!" This thickness for a moustache has long since been socially unacceptable or comically overused .
lemon 1
Inappropriate Size and Placement
Lemon twist meets soul patch. Inappropriate in so many ways.
lemon 2
Too Curly or Thin
Your date just lost all respect for you. Were they out of umbrellas?
lemon 3
Too Much Pith
Way too thick, man. This Magnum P.I. of a twist translates to being too pithy and bitter.
lemon 4
The MB's Choice
Just right. Appropriate thickness. Medium width. A slight curve is fine. Papa would approve.
lemon 5
