Meyer Lemon Mojito

So refreshing and delicious! From the garden and the bottle, into your glass…This cocktail can be mixed in larger batches for a party. It’s a wonderful twist on a classic.

Meyer Mojito

Meyer Lemons are sweeter than regular lemons, so if you use regular lemons, which I don’t suggest, you might need more simple syrup.
