Lime | Cocktail Party

Lime

You can use any variety of lime you like – key limes are welcome anywhere a Mexican lime is.

Don’t even bother with the pre-squeezed juice that comes in the little plastic bottles. The stuff they use to keep it fresh-ish imparts a bitter, chemical flavor that’ll kill your drinks dead.
