I always keep my eyes out for classic cocktail books…
Meyer lemons aren’t your standard lemons. They’re actually a hybrid between a mandarin orange and a lemon. They have a strong, slightly sweet lemon flavor and are a lot less acidic than regular lemons are. This means that you can get a lot of lemon flavor into a dish or a drink without having to add a tremendous amount of sugar to compensate for the tartness of the lemon juice.
This Meyer Lemon Lemonade is just the thing to cool down with on a warm day – or a day when you have a bunch of Meyer lemons around that need to be used up. The lemonade is very refreshing and you’ll definitely notice how much less acidic it is than regular lemonade and that means that you can enjoy even more of it. This recipe makes a small batch that is good for enjoying at home, but it can easily be scaled up to serve a crowd.
