Interesting Gigantalope. I was actually wondering the other evening, as I was trying to choke my way through a Dr Funk (recipe from Intoxica!), if the limes that we buy today are relatively the same as they were 50-60 years ago when all of these classic tiki drinks were developed.

I find many of the lime juice based drinks in Intoxica! and the Grog Log to be fairly undrinkable. The Dr Funk tastes like lime juice with a splash of Pernod. I couldn't even taste the rum! Others have mentioned that they cut the amount of lime juice called for in half and it tastes much better.

So...I was wondering if perhaps the limes of today are much stronger than those Vic and Don and the boys used?
