Total time
Serves: 2
  • 3 ounces (2 shots) freshly-squeezed Meyer lemon juice, plus wedges for garnish
  • 3 ounces ounces triple sec
  • 3 ounces tequila (questionable quality is okay)
  • kosher salt
  • edible pansies (optional)
  1. Pour approximately ¼ cup salt into a small saucer. Run a lemon wedge over the rims of two glasses (margarita or double old-fashioned), then invert glass and dip rim of each glass into the salt. Add a few cubes of ice to each glass and set aside.
  2. Fill a shaker with crushed ice. Pour lemon juice, tequila and triple sec into shaker and cover. Shake vigorously.
  3. Pour drinks into each glass. Top with lemon wedges and edible flowers, if using. Serve immediately.
