Meet the Lime Tree Cove team:
Tim McCaffery - Chief Mixologist
Welcome to Lime Tree Cove, I hope you are enjoying the site and the blog. As the Chief Mixologist, I enjoy conveying all of our food / cocktail pairing and preparation tips so you can host great gatherings. If you see anything missing or would like more details somewhere, please contact us. If you have any questions about our products, or are seeking custom cocktail recipes for your event or establishment, please call me directly at 1-866-257-1929 ext. 700.
People often ask us questions about the company at events. Here is a brief introduction.
I create our cocktail spice recipes and pair these with excellent cocktails. I like dreaming up new cocktail spice combinations. It tests multiple senses at once - taste, smell, texture. I can spend weeks to months thinking about a specific flavor and how to pair it with different cocktails. Through this process, I often find multiple types of cocktails pair with a particular spice. For example, Lime Tree Cove Sweet Mint Cocktail Sugar originally was designed to pair with mojitos. We've since found that the spice goes excellent with lemonade, coffee cocktails, hot chocolate cocktails, and martinis.
Aside from Lime Tree Cove, I enjoy skiing in the winter and tennis / golf in the summer. Traveling is a favorite past time of mine because I get to embrace new experiences.
I prefer Margaritas with Lime Tree Cove Spicy Chili Cocktail Salt . I've been making these at events for a while. The blend of 5 chili peppers really allows the flavors of the margarita to pop.
Favorite Place to have a Cocktail:
I've had many excellent cocktails in Hawai'i, but my favorite place is the The Mana Lani. The Kohala Coast has some of the best sunsets in Hawai'i. The resort is also one of the top Eco-friendly in the world so you can relax without worry.
Most fun Lime Tree Cove moment:
Seeing the team work together at the Hampton Beach Seafood Festival on the third day. Our booth was flooded the first two days and the spirits were low. The third day the weather turned and the team performed amazingly. In the end, we learned not to run outdoor events in New England.
Slow and steady wins the race.
