Pure Key Lime Extract

Time: 2 hrs 20 mins


  • 12 key limes
  • 1/4 cup Everclear alcohol
  • 2 tablespoons Everclear alcohol


  • 1 Using a microplane, remove the zest from the limes.
  • 2 Using a funnel, add the lime zest and 1/4 cup Everclear to a small sealable glass bottle.
  • 3 Allow the alcohol to extract the flavor from the zest, about an hour is adequate (you will see the liquid turning a beautiful emerald green color).
  • 4 Strain the liquid from the zest into another bottle.
  • 5 Add the remaining 2 Tb Everclear to the zest and mix well, then strain the rinse into the previous liquid.
  • 6 Discard the exhausted zest.
  • 7 Cut 4 inches from a clean nylon stocking and pack tightly into the bottom of a small funnel to act as a filter.
  • 8 Pour the extract into the funnel, with the nozzle in a clean sealable bottle (this is the final bottle to be used for storing the extract).
  • 9 The packed nylon will filter the cloudy particulates from the extract, it will be slow but you need not be present for the extract to filter-you should see about 2 drops per second.
  • 10 Keep the funnel covered until the extract has passed through it to minimize evaporation.
  • 11 Seal the bottle and store in a refrigerator or other cool, dark place.
