Sparkling Meyer Lemon Cocktail

Sparkling Meyer Lemon Cocktail created by Miss Fannie

This is great for a cookout. Great cool drink. Meyer lemons are a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange in taste. If you can't find Meyer lemons, the flavor won't be as complex. For every 1/4 cup Meyer lemon juice, substitute 3 tbsp lemon juice plus 1 tbsp orange juice plus 1/2 tsp sugar. Prep time includes chilling time.

    I loved the sparkling tartness with the hint of rosemary. I had to follow the well written directions for substituting lemon and orange juice. The flavors were still intense. I used a pink sparkling wine. This cocktail was delicious. I will add it to my cookbooks with pleasure.thank you for posting this recipe.
