Meyer Lemon Margaritas {with Infused Tequila}

I’m really liking the Meyer Lemon Infused Tequila. So much so that I could drink it straight from the mason jar with a side of salt. But that’s a little unprofessional, or so I’ve been told. So, I made these Meyer Lemon Margaritas instead.

I first used the infused tequila in a Ginger Margarita which was delicious with Domaine De Canton Ginger Liqueur. This time, the Meyer lemon margaritas are more citrusy than spicy.

The meyer lemon infused tequila is combined with Cointreau and freshly squeezed lime. To balance out the citrus flavors of the tequila and the Cointreau, add some organic agave nectar. Or you could add simple syrup if that’s your thing.

If Meyer lemons aren’t in season you could use regular lemons for the infused tequila. You would still follow the same recipe for the margaritas. You might want to add a little more agave nectar (or other sweetener  since Meyer lemons are typically sweeter than regular lemons.
