The second most common juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; 4% from citric and 2% from malic, with small amounts of succinic acid (this is what gives it a little bloody taste).

Make this in haste, don’t worry about making a mess. Squeeze about a half a lime into a mule cup, drop in the shell. Add a few ice cubes, add bourbon, and top with ginger beer. Give it one good stir. #build #ontherocks
