Meyer Lemon Margarita

MARGARITA INGREDIENTS:

  • 1.5 oz Arrogante Reposado Tequila
  • 1 oz Fresh Meyer Lemon Juice
  • 0.75 oz Cointreau Liqueur
  • 0.5 oz Meyer Simple Syrup

MEYER SIMPLE SYRUP:

  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Meyer Lemons - Zest Only
  • 0.5 cup water
  • PREPARATION:

    With a vegetable peeler remove zest from Meyer lemons in large strips. Make sure that you peel only the colored part; the white part of the skin will impart a bitter taste. Combine lemon zest, water and sugar in a small nonreactive saucepan and heat over the medium heat, stirring constantly, until all sugar is dissolved. Reduce the heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Cool the mixture, strain and keep in a fridge.

    In a Boston shaker, combine Arrogante Reposado, freshly squeezed Meyer lemon juice, Meyer simple syrup and Cointreau (orange-flavored liqueur). Add 3/4 cup of ice cubes. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled cocktail glass, rimmed with kosher salt. Garnish with a Meyer lemon slice.

This premium Margarita is all about Meyer lemons, which are sweeter than regular lemons and have beautiful floral taste. Adding Meyer lemons to cocktails imparts the lemon taste without mouth-puckering sourness of regular lemons.
