Lime Sour

There was a time when the words lime sour didn't first bring to mind a cocktail mixer. It's tart, refreshing, ice cold, and the recipe for this lime sour couldn't be more simple. Some people like to shake a little salt over the top. You can see why. Somehow that salt makes the drink even more thirst-quenching — like an old-school Gatorade.

Ingredients

  • Juice of 2 limes
  • Ice
  • Soda water
  • Salt

Directions

Pour the limes over an ice-filled glass and and top with soda water. Sprinkle salt over the top. Drink.

Lime Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
