Whether you call them, clear, silver, white or simple 'see through' how do you drink them?

I too was wondering...

A drink with 2 oz of lime juice? eek... Sour face!!!

Perhaps 2 tsp?

Ive never measured a lime, but a lemon gets about 1 oz of juice per. A lime has got to be 1/2 to 3/4 oz per.

I had to go and check this..to be sure. I have a oz jigger and i squeezed one lime, we have large persian limes here and i got exactly 1.80 oz from it..
According to that recipe for mojito which i found somewhere long time ago, 2 oz is the the measure. Anyway, i made those 2 mojitos yesterday and both tasted just fine, they were not overly sour..

Maybe we have different sized limes??

As for the grilling..for grilling idoors i can only use a iron grill that you place on top of the stove. It works fine, but i haveen`t been able to compare it to a charcoal grill. Anyway, the 2 lime halves upside down until you get the grill marks and then cool and then squeeze.

I`ll go on with the experiments tonight and grill pink and white grapefruit and make something with it, maybe a grapefruit daiquiri?

I start to wonder how grilled lime juice would do in a punch vieux?

57ml of lime juice wouldn't balance against a teaspoon of sugar. You'll take the enamel off your teeth!

You must have very interesting limes

Lol..maybe i do..

Anyway..maybe there is something wrong with that recipe? i once found it of course on the net. I used more than 1 tsp of sugar, maybe 2. But the drink tasted good... but can you maybe help and create a more balanced recipe?

We'd normally get about 20ml out of our limes - just under 1 oz. That should be the right amount to balance against 1 teaspoon of sugar, or 10ml-15ml sugar syrup

But i get a bit confused..: i squeezed one lime just to measure and i got 60ml of juice from it. These are large persian limes, and i have to go and measure the fruit now..lol..the fruit is 8 cm long and 7.5 wide.

They're twice the size of the limes we have in this country. That might explain it!

How big are your watermelons!?!?

Yummy!
I haven`t tried El D12 in a Mai Tai, but only El D15 which i found a bit too overpowering the other subtle flavors from the orgeat and the orange water. But it wasn`t bad and its my fav rum.
I usually make it with Appleton 12 and St James hors d`age or Appleton VX with Havana Club7.
What i wonder is how the difference is between the El D 12 versus the 15, both with Applelton VX ?

I would also be curious about a ED15/VX combo in a Mai Tai. If you try it Tiare, please let us know what you think.
