Meyer Lemon Amaretto Margarita1–1/2 ounces freshly squeezed Meyer lemon juice
1 ounce Amaretto
1 ounce Triple Sec
1–1/2 ounces Tequila
Ice cubes
Optional: round lemon slice to garnish the glass

Pour all ingredients into a blender. Add an equal amount of ice cubes and hit the “chop ice” button a few times to break them up. Then, shift into high and continue blending until a nice, smooth consistency is achieved. If the drink is too liquidy, add some more ice and continue blending on high. Be careful not to add too much ice or your drink will be too watery tasting. Pour into a margarita glass and garnish with a lemon slice.

For a non–blended margarita, just shake up all the ingredients (along with a few ice cubes) in a cocktail shaker for about 20 seconds. Strain the liquid into an old fashioned or highball glass, add a few ice cubes and float a lemon slice on top.

Makes one serving.
