Lemony pitcher of margaritas for the Super Bowl
I long ago fell in love with the clean, crisp, sweet taste of Meyer lemons. And recently, Mexican foods guru Rick Bayless reminded me why.
The Meyer lemon (named for Frank Meyer, who discovered them over 100 years ago) is a cross between a lemon and possibly some variety of orange. Thin-skinned, they often mature to a yellow-orange color and are slightly less acidic than common lemons. I like that because the lower acid makes it so much easier to appreciate the vibrant taste of these lemons.
And I’m particularly fond of using them in drinks. That’s just one reason I’ve fallen in love with Bayless’ new cookbook, “Frontera: Margaritas, Guacamoles and Snacks.” In it, he has a recipe for Meyer lemon margaritas that uses tequila that has been infused with the zest of the lemons for four days.
