Mixer Review: Master of Mixes 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.
In the past I've just used a straight squeeze from a sliced lime and included the slice with my drink. Sometimes I would use the RealLime brand juice from the bottle. But realizing I didn't have anything lime at home during a recent trip to the liquor store, the liquor store guru working that night recommended Master of Mixes Lime Juice. I had never used the stuff before and with my liquor store guru never having failed me with a recommendation I bought a bottle of it to try.
Made with key lime juice which is sweetened ever so slightly with pure cane sugar, this is a great add to any cocktail calling for lime juice. It delivers on tart lime flavor with a touch of sweet. 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 $3.29 for a 12.7 ounce bottle, I'm giving Master of Mixes Lime Juice 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. It's an easy repeat buy!
