Cocktail Mixer Review: On The House Sweetened Lime Juice
By Mike Thayer
I enjoy the occasional beer or glass of wine, but if I'm going to participate in cocktail hour, it's usually with a whiskey drink and my go-to is whiskey and water with a squeeze or splash of lime juice.
If I don't have fresh limes on hand, then I usually have some form of lime juice at the ready, be it RealLime in the little squeeze bottle or something similar.
Today I'm trying On The House brand sweetened lime juice.
With only 3 grams of sugar per serving, this mixer provides a nice lime juice flavor with a touch of sweet. I would compare this to Master of Mixes Lime Juice and would put it on par with that competitor. It tastes every bit as good as Master of Mixes and while you do lose the squeeze bottle feature - yes, you have to pour with On The House - you get more lime juice bang for the buck with the On The House stuff.
And it's not just for cocktails either! Use is to create Mocktails like mojitos, margaritas, and limeades. I like to use it often when drinking ice water, because yes water can get boring. And don't stop there! It's a nice finishing touch on grilled fare, it's particularly good on BBQ, hitting the meat with a few squirts when letting the meat rest before serving. Also excellent on street tacos, hit 'em up before applying your favorite taco sauce.
Costing me $3.49 for a 25 ounce bottle, I'm giving On The House Sweetened Lime Juice 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars, it's a repeat buy and deserves some space in your mixer arsenal.
