This bar staple has a long history in and out of the bar. Early in the 19th century scurvy was a maritime life plague. To combat this disease caused by a deficiency in vitamin C sailors were commonly given a ration of lime juice. Cocktail Essentials Lime Juice is produced from 100% Mexican lime juice to provide the perfect touch of acidity and soft floral aroma called for in a countless number of classic cocktails, including the Margarita and Gimlet. A combination of restaurant quality, outstanding taste and versatility make Cocktail Essentials Lime Juice one of the most popular Cocktail ingredients behind any bar.
