Pour into a tumbler and shake with ice. 

Maliaka Lime which is Swahili for Angelic Lime. makes a strong, short drink, with very tropical flavours. Pre-made syrup is easier and also it’s a bit nicer looking because you don’t have the pulp. It can also be lengthened with lemonade or grapefruit soda - pulp doesn’t work well with carbonation.
