After 3 years I finally raised four iddy biddy limes that yielded 1.5 ounces of juice.


Hopefully next years harvest is a little more plentiful. First drink using said juice...

Stiggins Daiquiri


Followed by Big Bamboo

The juice is definitely more bitter than what I'm used to so will have to adjust recipes accordingly if that's what I'm to expect in the future.

Rest of my week in review...

Outriggers

Was my first time using Plantation Barbados. I prefer Mt. Gay in this drink but still refreshing.

Don's Beach Planter

Didn't care for this one very much. Perhaps I need a different brandy. That and the pineapple dominated and it didn't come across to me as "complex" as some Grogalizer users state.

2070 Swizzle

I've revisited this a few times and it just doesn't sing like...

151 Swizzle (Atomic Grog V4)

Yes, I broke out the Kohala Bay. What's the point of having nice things if you can't enjoy them?!

Mai Tai

After only trying a couple drinks with the Latitude orgeat, I gotta say I prefer BG Reynolds. I'm sure with minor tweaks to the proportions I could make the Latitude stuff work just as good, but as a 1/1 swap in the Mai Tai's I've grown to love, it just doesn't get the right balance I'm looking for.

I'm thirsty. What's next?

Mikehooker what is your Mai Tai recipe? Always excited trying different balances of the same drink.

Mike., Difficult to tell from the pix if those are under developed Persian or Large Mexican/Key Limes.If those are Persians, try feeding em as soon as you see the first blooms this spring. I give my citrus plenny water and fertilizer from Spring til late Summer. My Key Lime gives me lotsa fruit but I donít use them in my drinks-Too bitter for me.
Cheers

I agree with nui 'umi 'umi -- Key Limes are too tart. Persians are the lime of choice. And yes to fertilizing, that's essential if you're not certain about your soil content.

My lime tree is very productive, and about 5 years old now. It took a beating from winds as Hurricane Matthew passed near our coast and I lost about 1/3 of my limes. So this will be a reduced yield year for me, but I'll still have more than I can possibly use.

By the way, I collected the fallen green limes and squeezed them and labeled it as "hurricane lime juice" just for fun.

Maybe it's just my taste for tart drinks (I tend towards less sweet, more sour drinks),but I prefer key limes, I feel like they have a richer "lime" flavor profile, and the acid cuts through the sweetness better. There's a variety called "giant key lime" that you can sometimes find trees of, the fruit is about twice the size of a standard key.

Managed to cross the Tiki Gold off my Tiki Ti list before I went back to my beloved Fog Cutters.

Typically...

3/4 oz lime
1/2 oz orgeat
1/2 oz curacao
1 oz Jamaican
1 oz Martinique or Demerara

No sugar

Appleton 12 is pretty much my standard Jamaican. When I use Clement VSOP or Damoiseau VSOP I stick with either Senior Curacao or Pierre Ferrand. If I'm going with El Dorado 12 I sometimes use the Creole Shrub as my curacao. But I find it too intense to mix the Shrub with an agricole rum. I'm real happy with quality and flavor of the BG Reynolds orgeat and find that using 1/2 oz of it deems the added sugar/rich sugar syrup unnecessary.

I love experimenting with different rum combos but those are among the favorite. And these are the proportions I start with when experimenting with other combos.

The tree is supposed to be Persians. I was waiting for them to lighten in color but they started shriveling and getting harder so I figured I'd go ahead and pull them. I didn't expect to get any fruit at all this year because, following advice from Ace and some online sleuthing, I realized I wasn't doing proper fertilization or watering. And it was the end of the fertilization season by the time I learned how to care for it.

And for what it's worth, the tree is in a pot, not in the ground, We did that so we could bring it in during the winter but now I'm thinking the cold we get in Austin is probably not intense enough to kill the tree and perhaps we should go ahead and plant it...

Mike, another bit of info on what I do with my citrus in winter. We also get brief periods of very cold nights, and we can never be sure if it will harm our citrus here in Northeast Florida. So what I do is cover young trees with a canvas painter's tarp from Home Depot or Lowe's, then set out a kerosene lantern under the tree overnight. The lamp will burn for up to 11 hours before it needs to be refueled. My larger citrus trees get two lanterns and no tarp cuz they are too big for tarps. I use the Texsport brand lanterns because they are higher quality than the cheapie lanterns at WalMart and they cost very close to about the same price as WalMart. Last time I ordered these from Hardware World LLC.

We go to great lengths to protect our cocktail craziness, and it's totally worth it.

If you're worried about fire, for a potted tree, a set of incandescent Christmas lights wrapped around the base, with a tarp over is done as well for cold nights. Persian limes are hardier than key limes, similar to Eureka lemons, so they should be fine unless you get a few nights of hard freeze.
