June 21st, 2006limes or lemons
I’ve been having an ongoing argument with someone recently.
I put a lime in a beer that wasn’t Corona (let me just say, the beer is really nasty tasting—I was trying to improve the flavor)… apparently this was total sacrilege to the beer. :P
Whatever, not the point.
He kept saying, “You put FRUIT in the beer? You don’t put FRUIT in beer unless it’s Corona.”
First, who the hell calls limes fruit? Logically, I realize that they are a fruit (shut. it.), but I mean, come on.
It’s a LIME. You don’t eat it like regular fruit (alone), you use it a) as a garnish, b) to make limeade and c) as an enhancement (vodka, beer, guacamole ;)).
So you just say “lime,” not fruit. Right? Anybody?
