Lime Day

We bought a bunch of limes on sale at the store today with the plan for having a Lime Day. So far, I've made an awesome Caipirinha (the national drink of Brazil) which is limes muddled with sugar topped with a couple of ounces Cachaca and ice. Shaken well. Best drunk slowly.

Update: Here is a photo of the Caipirinha:

Then, there is the Key Lime Pie that Lynne made. Can't wait for dessert.

And, I made some ice pops from watermelon, mint, tequila, agave nectar and lime. Those are in the freezer and probably won't be ready until tomorrow.

Now, I am looking for a good way to use lime in the beer can chicken we plan to cook tonight.

BTW it was a pool day. Last night was the first skinny dip of the season. The pool is at 82° which is just right. And, after working hard all morning, we had a nice long dip this afternoon, too. Maybe more later?
