Price of Limes
      #1587712 - 05/06/14 09:03 PM (75.172.60.98)

Has the lime shortage affected the price in St Maarten like it has in the States? Just paid a buck each in WA.

Yes, No one is buying limes at the price. Everyone is using lemons for now. No limes even on the cruise ships.

Thanks for the information. Limes will be in my carry-on. I can still find them at 3 for $2.00 in my local area.

Thanks Bob. Looks like my Rum&Coke will be void of the lime. Leaves more room for Rum. Can't imagine a margarita with lemons.

Margarita splash of grapefruit is a good substitute

An authentic margy can be made with either lime or lemon. Juice of one-half lime OR lemon, 2 parts GOOD tequila, 1 part Cointreau (or Gran Gala or Grand Marnier), shake well with ice and pour into a salted glass. As a friend of mine says "What are we drinking tonight? Shots on ice???"

Limes are 99 cents here in Western Canada. They are often 33 cents.

That deserves a Red Card, no, they can not be made with Lemons and be Authentic. Such a different flavor, not a Margarita at that point, may taste OK but not a Margarita. Lemons are not common in Mexico.

I also will state, it is not just the price but also the quality of limes that is the issue. Some produce plenty of juice, many at this time do not. I have paid $4 for 3 limes but I got quality limes.

Yes, I am very picky about my drinks that have lime.

but I think that given the price a lime strike is well deserved! come on $1 a lime there many people in the world that live with $1 a day.
