Lime Juice

Quick Sips: Lime juice offers an acidic, citrusy, sweet flavor.

Applications: Lime juice is a key element to several cocktails. In some, like Daiquiris and Margaritas, the lime juice forms a key flavor base. In others, like a Penicillin, lime juice serves primarily to add acidity.

Key Points

  • Lime Juice must be fresh. Pre-bottled juice does not taste even remotely close.
  • Lime juice spoils. Keep it refrigerated for a couple days max.
  • Be careful of lime varieties. You want good, ol’ fashioned limes. Key Limes offer a much sweeter taste. Plus, they are smaller and you must juice many more.
  • Buy a decent metal press. The plastic variety will break quickly with any type of regular use.
