Tomorrow I’m posting about Strawberry Lemonade Margaritas, woot, get excite! So, I had to make a simple syrup for the recipe, the “lemonade” portion. I saw Meyer lemons at my grocery store and knew I wanted to use them instead of regular lemons. They are smaller, with a thinner skin and still tart but a touch sweet. They almost have a slight floral fragrance to them and smell wonderful!

Meyer Lemon Simple Syrup

Simple syrup is basically one part water to one part sugar, here I jazz it up with some Meyer lemon juice!
Author Dana at ThisSillyGirlsLife.com

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup water
  • 1 Cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbls + 1 tsp Meyer lemon juice fresh squeezed (about 2 Meyer lemons)

Instructions

  1. Place water and sugar into a small sauce pot over medium heat. Bring to a boil stirring constantly until it comes to a simmer and the sugar is dissolved. Take off heat.
  2. Add in the Meyer lemon juice and stir to combine. Cool completely, use as desired and enjoy!

You can store the remaining syrup in an air tight container in the fridge. Since the addition of the fruit juice, I would try and use it up within a week (that’s just me, I know others will say longer). Simple syrup on it’s own will last in the fridge for 6 months!

    This sounds awesome! I’m so ready for spring and lemon tends to be what I gravitate towards while I not-so-patiently wait for it to arrive. 😛 Putting this in a strawberry Margarita is a GREAT idea! Definitely need to try it. Pinned for later and sharing on FB tomorrow, as well!

    Found you on Snickerdoodle Sunday, thanks for sharing!

    Do you ever have a problem with the sugar crystallizing in the fridge? My syrup almost always crystallizes if I don’t use it up right away.
    Thanks for sharing on Weekend bites!
