From that point forward, I have lived where the palm trees grow. Sydney has a temperate climate and Los Angeles enjoys a dry, Mediterranean climate. Both were lovely places to live and both had very mild winters but still, they were still too cold for La Diva to swim in the ocean in wintertime. Now that I live in Miami Beach, I can truly say I live in a tropical climate and do swim in the ocean in the middle of winter, in fact, I was in the sea only yesterday. In Southern Florida, we enjoy beautiful sunshine and mild temperatures (for the most part) year round and yes, coconuts can be picked from the trees on the beach. Sigh….
“If a palm tree don’t grow there, Diva don’t go there.”
The recipe actually calls for Persian limes, so if you can’t get Key limes, don’t fret. I just wanted to be masochistic and squeeze a million of the little buggers! They are only about the size of walnuts.
