A few years ago, Meyer Lemons really had their moment in the sun. It seemed like they were the star of every menu, from appetizers to cocktails and desserts. Originally from China, Meyer Lemons taste like a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange. It’s that extra punch of sweetness that makes them perfect for desserts and cocktails and today we’re sharing a delicious drink recipe from the Project Sip team, Jenn Gietzen and Kathryn McCrary, that showcases Meyer Lemons in all their glory. This recipe calls for gin, but I’ve found that you can easily substitute in some seltzer if you’d like to make a non-alcoholic version. The shot of rosemary simple syrup really seals the deal for me with this one — it’s a perfect late winter drink. Enjoy! xo, grace

  • mmmm. I’m very much into Old Fashioned right now, but this looks delicious, too!! Thanks for sharing, xxSol

  • Slightly confused on the measurements in this recipe. How many ounces is in the “double shot” used for this? A double shot can be from 2-3 ounces depending on if someone is using an actual double shot glass or doubling up a single. 6 ounces of gin is a lot! Haha thanks!

  • What is the lemon zest used for in the picture? It shows her zesting into a pot… do you cook that with the rosemary simple syrup? And two tablespoons of sugar in addition to the simple syrup?

  • I’d love to make this drink for dinner guests this weekend but need some clarification:
    is this recipe for 2 drinks
    how many ounces are in a double shot?
    the photo shows zesting, but is not included in the list of ingredients-should I assume it is used to make the rosemary syrup?
