Make it right with a lime

There are 5 taste sensations: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and savory. 1 alone rarely satisfies. Limes and lemons successfully “recruit” taste combos.

Limes fit in the bitter category, lemons in the sour.

What drink deserves a squirt of lime? Generally drinks made out of plant material. For example, potatoes make up vodka thus limes go well with vodka.

That’s not to say you never use lemon, it’ll be simply a different drink. Add lemon to gin and you get a lemon drop. Add lime, and it’s a gimlet.?
