Meyer Lemon Margaritas

We squeezed (no pun intended) these in a few weekends ago at the very end of Meyer Lemon season. After a day at the Seattle Aquarium (post coming soon), Oscar and I relaxed with some Meyer Lemon margaritas. It was the perfect ending to a sunny day downtown. YUM!

Meyer Lemon Margarita
1/2 oz. fresh Meyer Lemon juice
1 1/2 oz. good quality Tequila
1 oz. Cointreau
Kosher salt for rimming glass

1. Rub the rim of a glass with a Meyer lemon slice. Swirl the rim through a small pile of kosher to salt the rim.
2. Put the Meyer lemon juice, tequila, and triple sec in a cocktail shaker, add ice and shake for 15 seconds.
3. Put a few cubes of ice in your glass. Strain the cocktail into the glass and enjoy!
