You need to use a fresh lime--no funky limes that have been in the fridge for 5 days. Because this drink is not cut with sugar, a not so fresh lime will be very noticeable. And bottled lime juice won't do, either.

Twist the peel as much as you can to spray as much lime oil onto the drink as possible. This really adds to the aroma.
