Quick Key Limeade

Key limes are small and inexpensive.  They are just the right size for a single-serving limeade, but they are very hard to squeeze for juice.

It turns out that a key lime is just small enough to fit into a Zyliss Jumbo-size garlic press.  Using a garlic press, a key lime can be used for a quick glass of limeade.

Step 4: Finish to taste

Now add sugar, ice and water to suit your preference.  I like to put the lime skins (rinds?) in my drink.

What a complex thing! If you just want a glass of lemonade, press half lime with your bare hands over the glass.
I think that this lemonade will get a horrible garlic taste from the press, unless it´s a brand new press that was never used with garlic.
Why don´t you use a specific lemon press?

No garlic taste is retained by the aluminum garlic press. You are correct that this is a bit involved, but I had a lot of key limes and my lemon reamer was a bit too large for them.
