Pink Lemons

Just got back from New Seasons, where I ran across pink lemons. I haven't cut into them yet, but I'm thinking up ways to use them tonight (read cocktails). I couldn't find much info on these little beauties online, but Four Winds Growers sells trees. Here's their page on this citrus.

Coffees of the present and recent past

Roasted and ground by Stumptown (My grinder bit the dust. Any suggestions for a new one?).

Made with my trusty french press.

Consumed with Noris or Strauss half and half.

Panama Duncan Estate Organic x 3
El Salvador Kilimanjaro Organic
Honduras Cielito Lindo

Makes the morning that much better.

My bar...

It's getting there...

This is a generic photo of a sidecar taken from Esquire's drink page. Tonight, we made meyer lemon sidecars.

1 1/2 oz Germain-Robin Brandy
3/4 oz Cointreau
3/4 oz meyer lemon juice

Shake with ice and serve up. We decided against the sugared rim.
