Helpful tips
  • Since this cocktail is mostly booze, use the best alcohol you can afford. In my opinion, there is a taste difference.
  • It’s good practice to wash your citrus before either juicing or using as garnish. Since we’re only using 1 – 2 limes, I wash them by squirting some unscented natural hand soap in my hand and take each lime and rub the soap on the skin. Next, I take a vegetable brush and scrub the skin. I run each piece of fruit under cold water making sure all of the soap has washed off.
  • If you're washing a bunch of limes - fill a bowl with 3 cup of water and add 1 cup of white vinegar and let it sit for 10 minutes.  Rinse the limes under running water and use a brush to scrub the skin.
