When friends send you Meyer lemons, you must absolutely make Meyer Lemon Margarita. I recently received a bounty of sweet lemons from my friend Gemma, all the way from San Francisco. I got cooking and baking with them right away.
Meyer Lemons are sweeter than the regular tart lemons. This variety is in season only from November to March. I sliced them open and the fragrance was as sharply sweet as the citrusy Calamansi (calamondin) from the Philippines. I used the whole bunch I got in various ways: As a marinade, a condiment, and a baking ingredient. I had a few last ones left, and so, I whipped up a refreshing frozen Margarita. The Meyer Lemons added an exhilarating zing to the iced citrus concoction. This drink would be perfect, and easy for any celebration, whether you’re having a party, or scaled down to a small get-together at home.
Today, if only for a few minutes, as we welcome the New Year , allow yourself to be possessed by an optimistic spirit. Search your hearts for at least one thing which you were grateful for the past year. You’ll be surprised by the gentle warmth the thought brings you.
Cheers to a healthy Happy New Year for all of us!
