StarryNightSkies answered Wednesday March 21 2007, 12:39 am: I don't really think there is a point of a lime. I think it is to just add some flavoring. I don't drink or anything so I'm not 100% sure. And ususally you use the lime after the shot. There is also something called a chaser. This is ususally some type of juice to "chase" the alcohol to make sure you don't throw up after the shot.
