I would think Bearss Limes (the common lime found in supermarkets) would be great in mixed drinks.  I had a large in ground BL tree 10" X 10' but I tore it out to plant a Valentine Pummel or I would have sent you some budwood.

Gor the classic lime taste, go with s Persian.  For a heavier yielding and more fruity lime flavor,  go with a Red Lime.

Bearss lime, Persian lime, and Tahiti lime are three names of the very same citrus cultivar.

Yes but being in Florida, I cannot send plant material out of the State.
