Ideas for using up a glut of zestless limes

I have around 10kg of limes with zest removed (the zest gets dried and goes into the yummy spiceblends we make at spicepeddler.com.au).
I could just make lots of frozen margaritas and throw a party! Any other suggestions?

I've frozen lime juice in ice cube trays before, perfect for pulling out to cook with or add to beverages. My first thought was lime curd; most recipes require some of the zest, though.

You could make a batch of punch; lime goes famously with basically every liquor. Limeade (or lime "soda" with the addition of fizzy water) for the kiddos. I also love Key Lime Pie (http://food52.com/recipes... you can use your regular limes, and it will still taste good (just not as strong) without the zest. Or make a lime sorbet!

I second the limeade - and add mint! Add a bunch of mint to your simple syrup and let it steep until cool on the back burner. Then when you sweeten the lime juice and water - a breath of mint in each glass. Delicious. Ginger is also great.

If you're gonna have a party with frozen margaritas, you could stick with the theme and make big batches of guacamole, too! I love that fresh lime taste in my guac.
