More About This Recipe
I recently returned from a trip to sunny Florida where a sweet friend of mine handed me a bag of Meyer lemons.
Um, what am I supposed to do with these again?
Me: "Thanks! Who's Meyer and when did he gives you his lemons?"
Her: "Meyer's not a person. Well, I mean he is. He's an agricultural explorer from 1908, but it doesn't matter. These lemons are awesome!"
Me: "So what makes it a Meyer lemon? Should I be nervous?"
Her: "Ha! It's a cross between a lemon and a mandarin or an orange. It's really good. Just take this BAG already."
Me: "Okay, but if I eat these and my face turns into puckered Meyer freakiness, I'm calling you."
Her: "Someone give this girl something to do in life, please."
Life handed me Meyer lemons, so I made….MEYER LEMON HOT TODDIES!
Can I get a "what? what?"
Sorry, I get excited.
We'll need some Meyer lemons (duh,) some whiskey, honey, sugar and cayenne pepper. Simmer lightly until nice and hot. Pour into glass mugs and garnish with a thin lemon peel.
Sip your way back to health AND a nice buzz in no time!
