Limes are probably one of my favorite citrus fruits when it comes to alcoholic drinks. They add a wonderfully mild tart taste when mixed in. And a brilliant green color when used as a garnish. It pairs wonderfully with some of my favorite alcohols such as vodka and tequila. Heck, limes spruce up water all the time! It’s honestly quite a versatile fruit.
Plus, it’s small, easy to cut, and easy to juice. When limes and tequila come up, I think everyone instinctively thinks margarita! And for good reason. Because they are delicious! Margaritias are one of my first favorite alcoholic beverages! That’s probably why I have so many fun twists on the classic lime margartita like this refreshing Frozen Strawberry Margaritia or this vibrant Blue Margarita. But this recipe is all about the twist of lime cocktail.
A very easy to prepare, fun to look at and refreshing drink. With a handful of very common ingredients found in most home bars, this one is great after a long Friday when you want to usher in the weekend in style, but maybe lack some of the energy to do that.
Make a Twist of Lime cocktail for all occasions when you want that tequila lime taste, and lime green garnish without the margarita clean up.
