What is the difference between a lemon and a lime? It is kind of like asking which came first the chicken or the egg. There are definitely some juice and cocktail recipes that call for limes over lemons, as well as some cuisines such as Thai and Mexican that perk up with zesty flavor when lime is added. So, do not be caught out empty handed or attempt to substitute lime with its yellow cousin. It simply will not taste the same. We carry bottled to portion pac packets (perfect when you just need a measured dose). Just like fresh squeeze!
