For a simple, yet fun, garnish, use vegetable peeler to cut peel from additional orange into 3 (4-inch-long) strips. Trim and discard any uneven edges with kitchen shears or sharp knife; cut peels into 1/4-inch-wide strips. Gently wind orange strips, in spiral pattern, around drinking straws, securing ends of strips to straws with toothpicks. Freeze 15 min. or until firm. Remove and discard toothpicks, then carefully remove orange spirals from straws. Place spirals on top of cheesecake just before serving.
