Meyer Lemon Infused Tequila


Recipes from Rick Bayless and Deann Groen Bayless' "Frontera: Margaritas, Guacamoles and Snacks," W. W. Norton & Company, 2012

Makes one 750-milliliter bottle
8 Meyer lemons
750-milliliter bottle 100 percent blue agave blanco tequila

1. Using a vegetable peeler, remove the zest (colored layer of skin only) from the lemons in large strips. Place the zest in a large glass jar, then add the tequila and cover tightly. Let stand for 4 days to allow the flavors to blend, tipping the jar back and forth a couple times a day.
2. Strain out the zest, and the tequila is ready to use. Stored in a glass container or its original bottle, it will keep its vibrant color for 1 to 2 months.
