Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 1 cocktail

Ingredients

  • 1/2 medium meyer lemon
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 6 dashes angostura bitters
  • 4 oz rye, bourbon, or whiskey (go for the good stuff)
  • ice, meyer lemon wedges, maraschino cherry for serving (optional)

Instructions

  1. Cut your half meyer lemon so that you have 2 wedges. Gently rub the rim of your cocktail glass with the juicy part of the lemon. Squeeze the juice from both wedges into your glass. Add the sugar and bitters and stir just to dissolve.

  2. Add ice to your glass if you wish. Add 4 oz of rye and give a gentle stir. Top with lemon wedges and a maraschino cherry (optional). Enjoy!
