I edited the recipe to correspond to the one in the reference (Food & Wine). The reference's ingredient list neglects the second quantity of lime juice, which the instructions clearly require. I assume the intention is to make a quantity of syrup and store it in the refrigerator, using about 1oz (3 Tbsp) in each cocktail. I also rewrote the instructions to remove any question of copyright infringement.
