Ginnie Meyer

Makes 1 serving Meyer lemons are sweeter than everyday lemons, with a flavor that might remind you of a slightly tart orange. They are also usually a brighter, more vibrant shade of yellow that looks beautiful when sliced for garnish. You should be able to find them at most grocery stores during the winter and early spring, but you can substitute equal parts lemon and orange juice, if you can't.

Ingredients

  • 1 oz freshly squeezed Meyer lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 2 oz gin
  • 2 to 4 oz ginger beer
  • 1 piece of candied ginger
  • 1 mint sprig, for garnish (optional)

Directions

  1. Pour the lemon juice, simple syrup, and gin into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake the cocktail like you mean it and strain over fresh ice in a Collins (tall) glass. Top with the ginger beer and garnish with a piece of candied ginger stuck on a toothpick. Top with mint, if desired.Chef's Note: If you don't have bar measuring tools, you can use a tablespoon measure - 1 ounce is equal to 2 tablespoons.
