A refreshing "twist" to a plain cola. This way, you control the amount of juice; I like a lot of lime. If you want less lime flavor, decrease to juice of half a lime.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 ounces cola drink
  • 1 lime
  • ice


  1. Fill a tall glass with either ice cubes or crushed ice.
  2. Cut lime into quarters.
  3. Squeeze juice from three quarters over ice.
  4. Place fourth quarter of lime in the glass, lodging it in the ice.
  5. Pour cola over ice and enjoy.

This is surprisingly delicious. I always crush the lime with the ice before adding the cola & like the flavor even better with diet Coke. It's also great on a Summer day with a splash of white rum. Thanks for sharing! :-)

Yes! This is making me thirsty and I do like the lime so much more than lemon. Very good refreshing drink recipe.

I love lime cola! I used Diet Coke. I upped the lime juice b/c I love the flavor and used half of a lime I had leftover from another recipe. It's a keeper! Thanks for sharing.
