After making the Meyer Lemon Pound Cake I had 2 lemons left over that I just had to use. So why not make cocktails?!!? I googled and looked and looked some more and I came across a Meyer Lemon Whiskey Sour which sounded perfect. After quite a few sips I realized that I really didn’t like Whiskey so I opted to sub the Whiskey for Vodka instead. That was much more me. Both really are delicious I just wasn’t a fan of the Whiskey flavor. If you are then you’ll love it. Here’s the Vodka Lemony recipe.
Meyer Lemon Whiskey Sour

1 1/2 ounces whiskey (rye or bourbon)

Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a cocktail glass.
