Now I want share a bartender’s secret for making lime wedges — check out the video. If you can’t view the video, read the description below.
Cut lime wedges
- Cut a lime in half along its longest side.
- Cut a slit on the inside of each half. It should be perpendicular to the direction you cut the lime in half and deep enough to release the lime juice without piercing through the skin from the inside.

- Place the wedge on the rim of a glass so the rim fits into the slit in the wedge.
