This is a tricky dilemma for bartenders. After all, how many cocktails call on the lime? Roughly a lot
. And, with Cinco de Mayo only a short week away, there's no sign the prices will be going back down. Many bars, like The Drink
in Brooklyn, are offering lime drinks upon request but suggesting their customers switch up their routine orders and try some new libations, instead. Manager Allie Zempel says, "We love steering our customers to our house punches to give them our take on what is essentially a large-format cocktail. The Cormorant is one of our new favorites." While there's nothing we love more than a salt-rimmed margarita, we have to admit this take on the classic with lavender and honeydew juice makes for a surprising warm-weather alternative. Now, hold the lime, hold the coconut, and mix it all up.
