I’ve been off on book tour, so I’ve neglected the blog, but I find this space so comforting that I need to be back, daily! I’ve also had the great pleasure of meeting so many wonderful new clients that I am breathless with anticipation of all the gorgeous parties we’re going to create together!
So, it’s Thirsty Thursday, right? That and I’ve started to do a little Polyvore love for you brides, fashionistas and even men! Now, I am currently drinking a Green Superfood Spirulina juice that I made in my new crazy, fabulous Breville juicer, but that is clearly not a #ThirstyThursday kind of post. Let’s quaff, shall we? As always, the farmers’ market and my local Whole Foods (not to mention a trip to sunny Los Angeles and a friends’ lemon trees) inspire me and I’ve noticed that lemons are really looking good. To wit: The (Meyer or not) Lemon Margarita – L.A. Style.
(Meyer) Lemon Margarita Recipe
1 1/2 oz. fresh (Meyer) Lemon Juice – you probably need 4 lemons. Roll them on the counter first to release the juices!
1 1/2 oz. of the best silver tequila money can buy – you want smooth!
1 oz. Triple Sec
sea salt for rimming glass – optional
1. Rub the rim of a margarita glass or double rock glass (my preference) with a lemon slice. Swirl the rim through a small pile of sea salt (I use Baleine brand) to salt the rim.
2. Put the fresh lemon juice, tequila, and triple sec in a cocktail shaker, add ice and shake for 15 seconds.
3. Put some very fresh, square ice cubes in your glass. Strain the cocktail into the glass and enjoy.
