High lime prices giving US bartenders a hangover
< Previous Page
Independent filmmaker Laura Bahr, who has downed her share of margaritas at El Coyote and other watering holes, says if anyone dared put anything but a lime in her drink she’d likely never go back.
"The lime mixed with the tequila is just a winsome combination," she says. "Like peanut butter and jelly."
So until the price spike ends, Kohtz of Luna Park says he’s come up with the only alternative he can think of.
"I tell the bartenders, ‘Squeeze those limes extra hard. Squeeze out every drop you can.’"
