Lime-ginger coolers -- made with lime juice, soda, and fresh ginger -- are a great way to start off a light lunchtime meal.
- Small ice cubes
- 12 dashes bitters
- About 1 cup sweetened concentrated lime juice (preferably Rose's)
- 24 ounces (3 cups) seltzer
- 6 slices peeled fresh ginger
Fill six 8-ounce glasses with ice. Add 2 dashes bitters and 2 to 3 tablespoons lime juice to each glass. Top with about 1/2 cup seltzer; stir. Add ginger, and serve.
