Due to the ongoing lime shortage, several airlines are no longer offering fresh limes with in-flight drinks. Instead of paying an exorbitant amount for limes, here are four great cocktails to make with lemons.

1. Lemon & Basil Martini

Limoncello and lemon juice give this fantastic drink a double-citrus punch.

2. Strawberry-Lemon Mojitos

Fresh lemon juice balances the sweetness of strawberries in this delicious, fruity mojito.

3. Lemon Drop

This sweet-tart cocktail is garnished with sour Lemonhead candies.

4. Lemon Zest

Mixologist Brian Van Flandern blends Palo cortado sherry with gin and Cognac in this spin on a Collins.
