Tale of Two Limes

Always on the lookout for variations on traditional cocktails, Hangar 1 Kaffir Lime Vodka caught my eye for not only a classic styled tonic creation – but lower calorie version at that!  The Hangar 1 Kaffir Lime claims notes of wood, white pepper and cucumber.  My take is superior lime flavor with higher quality feel; or more bang for your low calorie drink buck so to speak.   More flavor in the vodka means less need in the glass for those watching the waistline.  Add in a wee bit of fresh lime, diet tonic and a magically delicious a low calorie, high quality drink awaits.
