Meyer lemon cocktail
This delicious cocktail gets its tang from garden-fresh Meyer lemons.

Whether they’re from your own Meyer lemon tree, or sourced from your local specialty grocer, Meyer lemons are often the go-to citrus for curated cocktail fans. Meyer lemons have a sweeter, less acidic flavor than your standard lemons, making them perfect for desserts and for cocktails like this Uncommon Threads sip — a play on the classic Bee’s Knees cocktail — from mixologist Arianne Fielder, of the Atlanta restaurant Seven Lamps.



1.5 ounce Aviation Gin
.5 ounce Cocchi Americano
.5 saffron infused honey *
6 drops Meyer lemon oil **
