Limey Cocktail

The Limey Cocktail can be thought of as an extra "limey" Frozen Daiquiri. That extra citrus comes from the use of a lime liqueur, which there are a few brands available, Marie Brizard being one of my favorites. Since there is quite a bit of lime from the liqueur, it's best to use fresh lime juice instead of some of the concentrates. This frozen cocktail is an excellent summertime sipper when you're in the mood for a whole lot of citrus.
