Lime Juice being rich in Vitamin C is an excellent remedy for sore throat and aids in digestion and controls blood sugar, and also promoted weight loss. It is used for various culinary and non-culinary purposes all over the world. Lime juice is known to reduce or even reverse the effects of excessive alcohol consumption and intoxication.
The difference between Lime Juice and Lemon Juice is that although the sweet and sour Lemon and the bitter and sour Lime are two different fruits, they have similar properties and tastes similar too, the Lime, unlike the sweet and large Lemon, is used raw and is usually plucked green and has more bitterness and sourness in it's taste, and is grown better in tropical and sub-tropical climates.
In drink mixing, fresh lemon juice brings a tangy zing to so many classic drinks and in fact, it's the most used ingredient in drink mixing other than the liquors of course.
Rittenhouse Rye Whiskey
Rye Whisky is essentially Canadian Whisky, Canadian corn whiskey uses some rye grain added to the mash to give it more flavour and this characteristic style and flavour gave Canadian Whisky the name Rye Whisky.
But, Rye Whiskey can be American too, it is essentially a Bourbon but must be distilled from at least 51% rye grain to be labeled a Rye Whiskey.
So the rule of thumb is, if it is referred to as Rye Whiskey it is American, and if its labeled as Rye Whisky, it is Canadian.
Mints are aromatic, perrineal herbs that grow in Europe, Asia, Africa and America and since natural hybridisation of different Mint ( Mentha ) species are common, there are many hybrids and cultivars across the planet. Along with the mint, peppermint, spearmint and cornmint are known cultivars used regularly in condiments, foods and drinks. The fresh or dried mint leaf is the source of the mint flavour and aroma and is known to have several health benefits and has been used traditionally as a medicine for stomach ache, chest pain and headache, heartburn and diarrhea too. In drink making mint leaves or mint sprig is used as a garnish and is intended to provide that cool, menthol note to the nose, with spearmint being the most common mint in use a garnish.
Soda refers to carbonated water, sweetened, flavoured or plain, but there is a difference between Soda and plain Carbonated Water or Sparkling Water, which is known as Seltzer Water, while Seltzer Water is plain water carbonated to add fizz, Soda water contains potassium bicarbonate and potassium sulphate in the water, and according to research Seltzer Water is safer for teeth health and sparkling water provides true hydration and is better at it than regular soda or diet soda.

However, we have embarked on a journey of manually updating the relative strength of cocktails, their flavour profile and in the future aim at providing approximate calories per drink too.
Blue Tick Project:We aim at manually validating and verifying each cocktail in their current context and mark them as valid, where, a blue tick would mean that the recipe has been verified and is 100% accurate while an orange tick would mean the recipe has low confidence.
Where as a grey tick would mean that the recipe has not yet been manually validated or verified recently.
