How Twists Once Were Made

In the dark days of cocktails, certain techniques for garnish preparation left much to be desired. Take, for example, the method Jeffrey was taught for creating lemon twists. No fancy peelers or channel knives here; just a old ice pick and a lot of time, and juice, on your hands.

Seems to me that you could make a perfect garnish for a Brandy Crusta that way.  Maybe Oxo will come out with a tool to recreate “ye olde twist”.
