Paul's Calamondin Limeaide (makes 1 glass)

My husband has a mild cold with lots of sneezing, runny nose and a sore throat. I think he is over-worked. Even though he is supposedly on vacation he has been working remotely every morning. He just needed some good rest and vitamin C. I made this drink especially for him with organic calamondin limes that he planted and harvested and a dollop of agave nectar. The result is surprisingly tasty. The calamondin limes are round, about an inch in diameter, very aromatic and are mildly sweet and sour in comparison to the regular limes. Prior to cutting them open I like to roll each lime on a hard surface with my palm to help soften it and for easy squeezing. Every batch of lime will yield a different quantity of juice depending how much water the tree had been receiving. For the ones I have, 3 limes yield about 3 tablespoons of juice. Add as little or as much of the ingredients as you prefer. I like mine with a little stronger lime taste.

Here is a little more info on Calamondin from Wikipedia.
