Lime Squash Drink (Recipe courtesy Lucinda Scala Quinn)
- 4 small or 2 medium-size limes
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1¼ cups (10 ounces) carbonated water (mineral water, club soda, etc.)
For the maximum juice, limes should be room temperature. Roll the limes over the counter back and forth with the palm of your hand. Cut the limes in half and juice them by hand or with a juicer. You should have ½ cup (4 ounces) of juice. Put the juice and honey into a bowl and mix well with a wire whisk or fork. Pour the mixture into a pitcher. Add the carbonated water and stir until all of the ingredients are well combined. Taste and adjust it for the desired sweetness. Serve it over ice. Yield = Two 8 oz. servings.
