As anyone who’s ever drunk a mojito or dipped a Dorito in homemade guacamole knows, fresh lime juice can be a game changer. A couple of months back, Easton and Fernando from our Fruit Team travelled over to Mexico & Honduras in search of the best tasting limes for our drinks. We use limes to add a fresh, tasty citrus kick to quite a few of our recipes (11 to be exact).
We only source our limes from three different farms. At one of those farms, the limes are hand washed which means it takes about twelve days to produce one container of lime juice.
Limes from Honduras have a very different flavour to limes from Mexico. Limes from Honduras are sharp and sour, whereas limes from Mexico are less intense and easier to drink. Both have their time to shine when it comes to adding a kick to our drinks, though.
There are only two varieties of lime– Persian limes and Key limes. We only source Persian limes as they taste much better in our drinks. Key limes are more bitter. Sub-lime in pies, though. We’ll give them that.
