Lime Time


I love limes...the scent, the flavor...so refreshing on a hot summer day. If I don't have the time (or the limes), I usually head for the Sonic drive-thru for a Limeade. On the drink menu today at the house---Lime Rickeys. The recipe:
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz simple syrup
3 dashes Angostura® bitters
6 - 8 oz club soda
What I usually do is juice a bag of limes, add simple syrup to the juice, and refrigerate it. Pour a "shot" into a tall ice filled glass, add a dash of bitters, and fill with club soda. Refreshing... Happy Summer!
