Lime shortage? Costco to the rescue!

When I took that cooking class in Santa Fe, the chef was bemoaning the fact that the lime shortage has driven prices so high, chefs were having to use lemons in their lime-flavored recipes.  When I returned home I decided to do the same, but my spring cocktail of choice - 100% agave and diet tonic - just wasn't the same. Too pucker-y. Today, the hubs went on a much-needed Costco run and brought home something better than roses, chocolates or even wine.
Yep, those crazy Italian Volcano people, makers of the ultra-convenient bottled lemon juice, have saved my lips from freezing in an unattractive sour pucker.  Maybe Italy's limes are still abundant, who knows? But, at two big bottles for nine bucks, my happy hours are looking up! Thanks, Costco.

For the record, I just realized this post has a lot to do with my last post. Maybe I should be a bartender after all?

Feel your pain. Gimlet up is our fav cocktail. Bars are now using bottled lime juice. Not the same. Stop this lime craziness!!

My husband priced limes at Costco yesterday at 1.19/ea. If that's not madness, I don't know what is. You might want to try the Volcano brand. Not like fresh but 1000x better than the stuff that comes out of the plastic limes.
