Hibiscus Key Limeade

keylime-thumb

There's no fruit quite like the key lime. Similar to its larger more-known cousin, this tiny citrus bulb is moderately sour but is leveled out by a slightly sweet and almost sugary finish. Toby, one of our employees, the tall British one, said it best after taking his first taste "it's almost like a summer love" he said,  "tart with a bite but oh so, so, so sweet". Because of its sweet and sour properties, key limes are perfect for beverages. Add a little bit of hibiscus syrup to the juiced key limes and you've got yourself one hell of a limeade. And even though it's winter, this drink is tasty year round - especially when you bulk it up with a little vodka.
