meyer lemon lemonade…yup, you read right. La di dah, indeed!
So why would meyer lemons be fancy schmancy? Meyer lemons are not a typical lemon, like the ones we often see in super markets. If you notice, the meyer lemon has a warm orange hue. It’s believed meyer lemons are the love-child of a mandarin orange and a lemon. Scandalous!
Lemonade is best when it’s fresh squeezed! Don’t you agree? I love fresh squeezed anything. In fact, I even love to say “fresh squeezed.” What a great adjective, right?! What if we started applying it to other aspects of daily life?…
Hi, Joe. Here are the fresh squeezed copies you asked for.
I can’t believe I got this fresh squeezed ticket!
How does this fresh squeezed sweater look on me?
Ok, I am getting carried away. I digress.
With a pile of meyer lemons on-hand, I needed to enjoy their sweet/tart nectar! A holiday weekend definitely warranted lemonade…with agave (a natural and low glycemic index sweetener)!

Meyor Lemon Lemonade
For 4 servings
Place one half of the meyer lemon at the bottom of your drinking glass. Using a mortar or other solid kitchen instrument, pound on the lemon and macerate it. Leave the macerated lemon in the glass. Add the 1 teaspoon agave and 1 cup of cold water. Stir well. Top with ice.
Enjoy. Have seconds too!
