A frosty Corona is often complemented with the citrus flavour of lime. The classic method is to push a lime wedge into the neck of a Corona bottle so each mouthful of beer filters around the lime wedge. Squeeze a slice of lime directly into a tall glass of beer for the same crisp flavour without the difficulty of securing it inside the bottle's neck. Regardless of your preferred method, a properly sliced piece of lime adds extra kick to any Corona.

Things you need
- Cutting board
- Paring knife
- Paper towel
Wash and dry the lime thoroughly. Many unwashed hands touch the skin of fruit throughout the production and distribution processes, so eliminate surface bacteria.
Place a paper towel on the cutting board, and put the lime on top. The paper towel reduces any slipperiness from the lime juice on the cutting board.
Slice across the width of the lime so you can see all the fruit segments. Cutting against the fruit segments enables you to squeeze your wedge without squirting juice everywhere.
Hold the two lime sections so the flat, fruit-exposed edges face down and the rinds face upward. Slice each half down the centre again. You should now have four lime wedges.
Slice the quarters again, for a total of eight wedges. The final cuts are the most difficult to make so take care to keep your fingers a good distance from the knife blade.
Tips and warnings
- Keep your lime wedges juicy by cutting them just before serving the Corona.
- Wrap any leftover lime wedges in cling film and store in the refrigerator.
- Don't attempt to cut limes after drinking large quantities of alcohol. Small fruits, precise incisions and sharp knives are a dangerous combination if you're intoxicated.
