We were peeling blood oranges yesterday when we remembered this cocktail garnish (photo #1) from The Skylark, a cocktail lounge in Midtown Manhattan with panoramic views of the city.

We especially like this tricolor peel presentation (we actually eat the peels, too—a tasty nibble).
Combine them in a 2:1:1/4 ratio.

They call it “a redhead, a blonde and a brunette walk into a cocktail.”
This is not gender-related comment. All humanity comprises redheads, blondes and brunettes.
