Raspberry-Meyer Lemonade with Tequila

Raspberry-Meyer Lemonade with Tequila Recipe

Raspberry lemonade—enlivened with tequila—may be the best of all summer-porch or backyard-patio drinks on a long, hot day. Thin-skinned and fragrant, Meyer lemons give this lemonade a delightful sweetness and perfume you will not find in store-bought lemonade.–Karl Petzke

    This is one of my favorite summer treats. It works also well with strawberries alone or combined with little chunks of pineapple. Make sure tequila is 100% agave. Read the label carefully!

  2. Thanks so much for this recipe – I made it for a bachelorette party I hosted recently, and it was a huge hit! I linked to your recipe here.
