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
