Hi guys! My name is Moe Harris and I'm here in the Professional Bartending School in Arlington, Virginia. Today, I'm going to show you how to make two basic garnish cuts. Garnish is something that actually is going to add to the look, sometimes to the flavor of the drink itself. You are going to need three essential things; you are going to need a knife for the cutting, obviously a fruit for the garnish and the cutting board, so you don't mess up the surface on, which you are cutting on. Now, the first cut that we are going to make is something called a wedge. All you are going to do is slice each end off the lime. Now that you have got the end sliced off, you can stand it right up there, and you are going to make a cut right down the middle, so you have got two big fat pieces there. Then what you are going to want to do is now that you have it halved, you are going to make a little slit right down the inside, this way right here, and that's going to allow it to do is actually rest on your glass nice and easy, so it will stick right in, one little cut. Then finally, you can cut this into either three or four pieces depending on the size of the garnish that you want. I'm just going to make three pieces this one right there, and cut this thing in the thirds, another one right here, and now you have got three basic lime wedges. Again, that slit right there and it does allow that thing to sit right on the edge of your glass, and there you go. Let's put three of them on this thing, why not, three limes and nothing else. That's your basic lime wedge.
