Our limequats are ripe, and thus cocktail time it is. The limequat is a cross between a Key Lime and a kumquat; limes are tropical fruits and because of our subtropical latitude here in North Florida, we still can get some freezing temps in the winter that limes just don’t like. This hybrid tree, however, can withstand the cold. The tiny limes are perfect for happy hour drinks.

Pimm’s Cups are a favorite of the British. The liquor, Pimm’s No. 1, is flavored with fruit and spice, and is really refreshing when used in this cocktail.

Ingredients:

1 jigger Pimm’s No. 1 liquor
1 jigger gin
1 jigger lemon or lime juice
1 jigger simple syrup
Top off with a splash of seltzer

Garnish with peaches or limes as I did, or the traditional cucumber and orange slice. Cheers!
