Grilled Lime Cocktail
"After reading this, you’re going to start grilling limes immediately! At least you will if you know what’s good for you. The idea of a Grilled Lime Cocktail just sounded so dreamy, I had to make it happen. Now that the weather is finally warming up around here, it was time to finally see if my idea lived up to the hype. When we were in Aspen earlier this year, we had an amazing dinner at Matsuhisa. Allegedly Leonardo DiCaprio was there too, but unfortunately I didn’t get to hang out with him. Next time! I ordered the Umami Seabass with Miso, and naively asked if it came with a side dish. I love food, what can I say?! The waitress said, “Of course! It’s served with a grilled lime.” We clearly have a difference of opinion on what constitutes a side dish. Differences aside, when I tried the “side dish” I was blown away at how grilling it completely transformed the flavor of the lime. It was much more mild, not quite as sour, and the perfect amount a little smoky. I immediately envisioned a summer filled with grilled lime cocktails.
