What garnish works best with the Axis Kiss?

The Axis Kiss, being an elegant and simple cocktail, is best garnished with a twist of lemon or orange peel to complement the almond and berry notes from the amaretto and creme de cassis. A single raspberry or a cherry can also be an exquisite addition for a burst of color.
