Bartending essentials: Knife and peeler

A sharp knife for cutting fruit is a must have. If you want your garnishes to look nice you can’t do without one. A good cutting board is also a must.

Twists and spirals really make a cocktail look great, and they’re very simple if you have a twist knife. A twist knife is also for peeling fruit, and so it’s sometimes called a peeler.
