Last of the summer lime

You’ll find no pandering to the newly arrived autumnal weather here at Caoba. We’re still drinking cocktails like it’s a balmy 25 degrees outside. Well I say cocktails but really I mean Mexican beer with the juice of a lime squeezed into it for a sharp, refreshing, Mexican alternative to lager and lime.

Take one Mexican blue-rimmed, high-ball glass and dampen the rim with water then dip into a saucer of salt flakes (table salt will work just as well), as if you were preparing a Margarita. Allow to dry. Squeeze into the glass the juice of one lime*, two if the lime is small. Top up with beer from a chilled bottle of Sol or Corona, stir gently and drink. Responsibly of course.

Glass, beer, lime, salt

Before…

*Insider tip: Before cutting the lime in half, roll it around on the work surface to release more of the juice and/or pop it in the microwave for 10 seconds.
