Meyer Lemon & Rosemary Lemonade

Meyer Lemon & Rosemary Lemonade

 

I’m so excited that I finally found some Meyer Lemons! When I lived in London I once went on a wild goose chase for them all over the city on a false tip. You can’t get them outside of the US because they’re too delicate to ship.

I bought them without any plan on what I would actually do with them. Since they’re sweeter and have a more floral taste than regular lemons I wanted to make something to highlight the delicate flavors. I thought a lemonade would be the perfect way.

I infused the rosemary only for a few minutes while the sugar was dissolving. If I left it overnight I felt it would overpower the lemons.

Since I used fancy lemons I put the lemonade in a fancy pitcher I got from Ikea.
