Citrus State Of Mind

Our Meyer Lemon season is getting going
now, which signifies all that is right in the world.
The days (and nights!) have been so beautiful this week,
I can't help, but open up the gateway 
to the weekend  with a 
super sunny, and delicious
Citrus Margarita. This recipe calls for only Meyer Lemons,
but as we also have limes and oranges waiting to drop,
I think a mixed bag is in order- adjust as needed.
Meyer Lemon Margarita Recipe
1 1/2 oz. fresh Meyer Lemon Juice
1 1/2 oz. Tequila
1 oz. Triple Sec (or Cointreau if you want to go “top-shelf”)
sea salt for rimming glass
1. Rub the rim of an old fashioned glass (or whatever similar vessel you prefer) with a meyer lemon slice.  Swirl the rim through a small pile of kosher or sea salt 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.
