Directions

Into a pitcher, put about 2 scoops of ice cubes. Squeeze in the juice of 8 Meyer lemons or 8 regular lemons in a pinch! Add several dashes of sugar cane syrup. Add the leaves of 2 fresh mint sprigs, torn into pieces. Add a few lemon wheels for garnish. Add 4 ounces of Tequila and give it a stir. Place in the refrigerator to chill.

When serving, put the ice in tall glasses, and pour the Tequila Lemonade over the top. Top up with a splash of fizzy soda water. Garnish each glass with a wheel of lemon, a vanilla bean, a sprig of mint, and a paper umbrella.

    Fantastic tequila-based drink for a cocktail party. You won't spend your entire night in the kitchen chained to a blender. I was behind the eight ball so opted for store-bought lemonade and limeade (Simply brand or Paul Newman's. I also skipped the vanilla bean since I had tons of guests but made up for it with a few water glasses brimming with fresh bunches of mint.

    I had two pitchers of the lemonade and tequila mix already set (and kept replacing them. I then added ice to each glass, poured the mix to an inch or two from the rim, topped off with club soda, light stir and then garnish. YUM!

    Everyone loved the presentation and the taste even more. PERFECT!
