A bright, effervescent sparkling lemonade made with Meyer lemons. Just sweet enough to take the edge off the tartness.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 c. Meyer lemon juice (about 4-5 lemons)
  • 3 tbsp. agave nectar
  • 3 1/2 c. sparkling water

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a resealable bottle. Close bottle and shake until well-combined. Let lemonade sit for a few minutes before opening (and open carefully!). Add ice cubes, additional agave nectar, and lemon slices when serving if desired.

    HA! You and I must be on the same wavelength! I made something similar yesterday. I can’t find Meyer lemons here to save my life.

      Great minds think alike. 🙂 I had trouble finding Meyer lemons when we were in Wisconsin–I suspect that being closer to the source helps. And I think these were the last of this year’s crop. They weren’t looking too hot.

    I have been on such a lemon kick lately! I’m going to buy sparkling water my next trip to the grocery and whip this up 😀

    Love that life handed you lemons this week and you literally made lemonade 🙂 Sounds like a delicious way to welcome the warmer weather. I know I said we were done with trees, but we couldn’t resist planing a key lime/meyer lemon cocktail tree. It’s teeny tiny so it will probably be a while before it bears fruit, but I can’t wait! Hope your week continues to improve from here.

      Meyer lemons and key limes?! Clearly that is the BEST FRUIT TREE EVER. I planted a tangerine seed a few weeks ago & it just sprouted, so at least you’ll be enjoying your lemons and limes before my tangerine tree starts bearing fruit. 🙂

    Yummy! This sounds delicious, too. Sadly, I haven’t seen Meyer lemons in ages…but I do have a Soda Stream and a grapefruit – maybe I’ll give that a whirl!

      Ooh, I need to try mixing grapefruit juice with sparkling water. I think that would be good!

    I’m glad your week is finally picking up! That stinks about the camera. I’ve made lemonade before, but never with meyer lemons or agave. I have yet to see meyer lemons sold in the supermarket here (I was shocked when I finally saw blood oranges one day), but if I ever do I am making this!

      I had never been able to find them until we moved to the South–I’m assuming they’re easier to find here because we’re closer to Florida? They sell little Meyer lemon trees that you can grow inside though: http://www.logees.com/Lemon-Meyer-Citrus-limon/productinfo/C2004-2/. I want one!

        Tempting! I’ve (inadvertently) killed several cuttings from my parents’ fig trees though, so I’m not sure I want to subject the little plants to myself. 🙂

    yay for happy beverages! I hope your camera is ok tho? Someone was just telling me about Sodastream – I drink so much sparkling water that I have to get one of those. And I’m loving your napkins 🙂

      The Sodastream is amazing. I only drink soda on Saturdays, but I drink a lot of sparkling water & sparkling water/juice mixes, so it is awesome for that. I think now there’s another thing that you can use to carbonate water–it screws onto bottles. I don’t know what it’s called, but I’ve seen it at Williams-Sonoma.

      My camera is fine, but my lens broke. My husband put it back together, but it was having trouble focusing, so I bought a new (different) one which came in the mail yesterday. I am loving it!

      They have a really distinctive flavor and they’re so fragrant–I love them! I don’t think I ever saw them in the grocery stores when I was in Wisconsin, so I’m happy that they’re easy to find in North Carolina. I’m sure as they become more popular, they’ll start selling them in more locations!

      Thank you! I love making sparkling juices–I rarely drink soda, but I still like fizzy drinks. 🙂

      I am on an agave kick lately! I had it sitting in the pantry unused for months and now I’m putting it in everything. 🙂
