Meyer Lemon Old Fashioned

Next time you are in the mood for an old fashioned cocktail, try it with a splash of Meyer lemon juice for a Meyer Lemon Old Fashioned.

The other night I put up a quick poll on my Facebook page to see what recipe people were interested in seeing next from me.  I’ve been planning ahead for my trip to Italy ( we leave tomorrow. TO-MOR-ROW!) and figured I’d let you choose what came first.

Well you guys are little lushes! An overwhelming response came in for this cocktail! Huh, so I’m curious if I said it was a beet cocktail instead of a beet dip would you be more interested?
