Meyer Lemon Agave Margarita

One of my dear friends is Celiac. She is trying to live gluten free and as sugar free as possible. When she indulges in a cocktail it is often hard to find mixers that are low in sugar and ones that contain no gluten. Over the years I have tried different natural sweeteners and combinations of fresh lemon and lime juices to make the perfect Gluten and sugar free Margarita. Today, I think I might have done it!!!

And thanks to my Dad, we have fresh off the tree Meyer Lemons!!!

Meyer Lemon Agave Margarita

2 large Meyer Lemons (one sliced and the other quartered, seeds removed)
2 small 16.9 oz bottles of water
1/4 cup Agave Syrup
1/2 cup Triple Sec
1/2 cup White Tequila (I like Sauza)

In a pitcher, drop in the slices of lemon. Pour one bottle of water over lemon slices. Pour half of the second bottle of water into the pitcher. Pour agave sryup into the half bottle of water. Shake and then pour that into the pitcher. Add triple sec and tequila. Stir. Squeeze quartered lemons into the mixture.

Serve over ice or blend with ice. Either way drink responsibly!
