A classic martini with lime

  

I will keep this post short.

I ordered what I thought were 4 limes from tesco online. When it arrived I realised I had, in fact, ordered 4 BAGS of limes. Keen not to let it go to waste, I have so far used them in the following:

  • Ceviche
  • Smoothies
  • Gin and tonics

However I have now also tried using them in a martini, by peeling some of the skin and squeezing the oil into the glass before using it as a garnish.

However, while I may now be free from any risk of scurvy, the lime flavour from the oil was too bitter and harsh for the martini. Science experiment over, I can now safely say that you should use lemon peel in your martini and save the lime for your gimlets or gin and tonics.

Class dismissed!
