My best finger lime recipe

January 13, 2011

Author Notes: Finger limes are a new arrival at the Santa Monica Farmers' market. They are an extremely resin-y version of lime, with small vescicles that pop like caviar. I thought they might taste good with gin. I was right. EarlyToBed

  • 1 shot gin (pref. hendriks)

So looking forward to getting my finger lime consignment next weekend. I can't promise to have them with copious amounts of gin but I'll get creative. Thank you

just got a huge shipment of Finger Limes - about 2 lbs - Can't drink enough Hendriks to use them up. Have sliced them and they are soaking. Will make Finger Lime Marmelade tomorrow morning.

Yes indeed it was yum--and it made me finish off my bottle of Hendriks. I liked slurping up the finger lime vescicles at the bottom of the drink, too.
