Ooooh - Limequats at the Wedge!

At least, the Wedge had lots of limequats a few days ago. I've already made a limequat drop cocktail (like a lemon drop, but with limequat juice and the peel/pith as garnish) and sauteed turkey tenderloin with limequats and cranberries. And I started a vodka-limequat infusion.
More discussion of limequats is in this thread:
By the way, these so-called limequats were very yellow, and looked like they should be called "lemonquats". But who cares - they're DELICIOUS!!!! Run out and get your own (if they're still available).
I don't have a recipe - I just toss the chopped limequats, skin and all (because the skin is the sweet part), in a bottle of vodka, then try to ignore it for a few weeks. For more useful information on citrus infusions, see the Spirits board, including posts like these:
I've made a kumquat caipirinha, which is traditionally made with limes. I'll have to amend to try a limequat version.
Was at the Wedge on Saturday and they still had Limequats (super sour to those unfamiliar), but they also had Mandarinquats! Loved them. Would love to have a smoothie / glass of juice from it. Sweet with just a hint of twang.
