"This recipe comes from "The Complete bartender" Cookbook. It's super simple, and it just puts a nice twist on to the regular cola. Make it at home instead of buying it at the store!!!"

"There is no other way to drink cola! When we were little, my mother would make us kids a couple of ounces of cola (as a super-special treat) and top it off with a wedge of lime...we called them Coke Cocktails. Thanks for the wonderful memories, my DH thinks I'm so weird when I drink this."
"Thanks for posting this! It brings back great memories! My mom used to make these for us for 'special times'--we called them Coke Cocktails and only drank them in special glasses. Funny, Houseblend, your mom did that too! Wink, Wink!"
"I do love this combo but for some reason (even when I have limes) I forget about it so seeing this here is nice reminder to have it again! :)"
"so simple, but oh so good! :) love this recipe. I made mine with diet coke to treat myself after I finished up cooking lunch. perfect! SO much better than the canned/bottled kind. thanks for sharing this!"
"LOVE this! Extremely refreshing. Made with icy cold coke zero I am in heaven. I don't even miss the rum.........much."
"I have done this for many years. I also love to add lemon to my coke at times as well. But the lime is the best!!!!"
"I love Coke with lime... My favorite soda to drink! YUM!!!"
"I love drinking my coke, pepsi dite pepsi and also tab like this I normaly drink it with lemon instead of lime. Even at resturants I ask for lemon with my pepsi, thats the only way to drink it although some times i get weird looks from the waiter. "
"yummy drink very refreshing on a hot day "
"Been doing this long before acutal Coke with lime came out. This is so much better than the manufactured stuff. I love limes! Refreshing and delicious!"
"This is my drink of choice all year long! I've been drinking lime cokes (and Dr. Peppers) since the 60's. Try adding maraschino cherries for a Cherry Lime Coke or Diet Coke. My sister drank Pineapple Dr. Pepper-just add a bit of crushed pineapple to the Dr. Pepper--Yum!"
"I agree with dmac085. I also squeeze some of the juice in my drink and place a slice inside the glass. This works well for lemons also."
"I do this all the time at home, usually with Coke Zero or Diet Coke. I slice a lime, put it in a baggie in the fridge, and then squeeze a section over ice & pour my cola in - a great, refreshing individual treat ;)"
"This is awesome! Way better than the premade lime colas. I think those taste like there is festering rotten lime in them. lol Anyway, I used organic bottled lime juice. It was great! Thanks!"
"Excellent lime cola. I love the burst of flavor that the fresh juice adds. "
"I LOVE lime in coke! I order it all the time at Sonic...the ice is great there too. When I make it at home I squeeze half a lime in and float the lime in the glass. The fresh juice makes all the difference. "
