They say “when life hands you lemons, make lemonade”. We say, and Cocktails. And Pies. And Cookies.
The tangy juice of lemons and limes add a tart and delicious flavor to our featured cocktails and desserts. The bright taste is a refreshing complement to the summer sun.
To easily release their juices, roll lemons or limes with the palm of your hand over a hard counter surface before you slice or juice it.
Then pucker up and enjoy!

Did You Know?'Cilantro' is the Spanish word for coriander, so the terms are often used interchangeably. Its appearance is very similar to Italian flat-leaf parsley, so be sure to use care when purchasing at the market.
While many people love the taste of cilantro, others - like myself - find it has an unpleasant "soapy" taste. Apparently, from what I've read, some people are genetically predisposed to react to this particular herb with a bad taste in their mouths - literally!
