We were very excited to sit down and talk Kitchen Curiosities with Mr. Eamon Rockey the General Manager at Betony and head of all of their beverages which they are known for.
In our interview with Mr. Rockey see how to make citrus curls and learn about his famous milk punch (it’s not milk) and what inspired him. By the way we went out the next day and bought the channel knife at Sur La Table.

Then the citrus turns into a curl like this.
Examining all my peels! They were short to start but I got better.

Trying the milk punch (this one is made for kids). We loved it. It’s thick and fruity but not too sweet.
The oranges look really pretty like this. Cara Cara orange on left and the Blood Orange on right.
Some of our citrus curl creations. Ha ha. We like this activity can you tell.
