Raspberry-Meyer Lemonade with Tequila

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
