The tree outside my living room window is full of Meyer lemons, so I’m ready to turn lemons into lemon-flavored cocktails. I’ve documented my love of Meyer lemon cocktails before (more than once). But here are even more ideas for how to brighten a winter day with a Meyer lemon cocktail!
Meyer Lemon Lavender Mojito ~ If you’re already experiencing spring weather, like I am, this is the perfect cocktail to enjoy the sunshine and birds.
Cold Spring Cocktail ~ Cognac and maple syrup add dimension to the bright flavor of Meyer lemon in this drink. (If you don’t have rhubarb bitters, you can make your own DIY Rhubarb Bitters … you won’t be sorry!)
Blueberry-Lemon Fizz ~ This is another one for sipping on the patio on an unseasonably warm day. Light, refreshing and fun.
Four Winds ~ Mezcal and Yellow Chartreuse make for a sophisticated drink perfect for a night in.
Getting a perfect salt (or sugar) rim on your cocktail glass isn’t that hard. Here’s a simple tutorial to show you how. You can do this for Margaritas (salt) or Sidecars (sugar) … or whatever sounds good to you!
Save on your heating bill by boiling up one (or more) of these hot cocktails. It’s the smart and economical thing to do. OK, maybe it isn’t. But it’s definitely the fun and delicious thing to do.
Gimme S’more ~ Honey and cinnamon infused liquor acts as the graham cracker, while hot cocoa and a marshmallow complete this drinkable s’more (with a little brandy for good measure).
Spicy Mulled Negroni ~ This spiced up version of the classic Campari cocktail brings the heat so you may be able to ditch the sweater.
Spanish Coffee ~ Spiking coffee with booze takes on some flair when you add cream and orange liqueur. It’s like Irish coffee’s alluring cousin.
Atholl Brose ~ People in Scotland know a thing or two about cold weather and liquor, so it’s no surprise they came up with the most inventive warm drink: Scotch infused with oatmeal and then heated up with cream and honey.
Maple Hot Toddy ~ Maple syrup makes everything (OK, most things) better. Use bourbon if you can’t find Sapling liqueur.
