Flaming an Orange Peel

The trick to getting a bright and singed orange flame from an orange peel is not always easy.
Start with a broad zest ribbon you get from using a peeler, not a zest tool. Hold the peel so that you can put pressure on the edges with every finger as you squeeze it from the edges toward the center over a lit flame. Rub the singed peel on the rim of the glass to get the flavors to transfer to the drink.
