This should start your weekend off right.

No, not my stunning, speckled formica countertops (blech, what were builders thinking in 1995?!).  But yes, those lemons.  Specifically because those are Meyer lemons boiled in sugar and water to make a beautiful simple syrup.

A simple syrup that will work hand in hand with fresh lime and lemon juices and tequila and triple sec to make you a tart, citrus-y, fabulous margarita.  A margarita that will replace all desire ever to use a neon green, granule margarita mix.  Just say no to neon foods.  That's sort of a life rule.  Along with saying no to Mr. S&S's neon basketball shorts.  No.  Just... no.  But yes to my fabulous neon pink shirt.  It's totally different.  Obviously.

But back to these margs.  You should really, just really give them a try.  So worth it.  

Happy weekending! 

Meyer Lemon Margaritas
Makes 1, but is better multiplied with friends

2 oz Meyer lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
2 oz Lime juice (about 2 limes)
2 oz Triple Sec
2 oz Tequila
1 1/2 oz Meyer lemon simple syrup 

To make the simple syrup, combine 3/4 cup sugar with 1 cup water in a saucepan.  Slice up 1 Meyer lemon and place in the pan.  Cover and bring to a boil, stirring once, for about 1 minute.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Rub the rim of a glass with a cut lime and dip into salt, sugar, or a salt/sugar blend (my personal fav).  Mix all listed ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker for 30 seconds (don't be like me and use a nalgene.  be classier. I beg you.) and pour over ice.  Serve with a twist.

Yeah, I use abrevs.  Sorry not sorry.
