Let us step back to the end of February (still in Pisces mode) when it was cold and dreary. We bought several bags of Meyer lemons and made marmalade and jelly. Sweet and tart and the perfect curative for that pesky scurvy.
Now fast forward to birthday which needed the perfect libation with a minimum of work. The second the Meyer Lemon Jelly was in the jar, we knew it would be the most awesome cocktail ingredient. Our drink of choice is a gin based French 75. We uncorked the richly botanical Botanist Gin (thanks for the recommendation Pigtown Design), added the jelly and topped off with prosecco. The perfect French 75 with no work.
1 teaspoon Meyer Lemon Jelly
1 ounce Botanist Gin
In a champagne flute (about six ounces) add the jelly and gin. Give a quick stir. Top off with prosecco.
Happy Birthday to Me!
Besides having a cocktail, the plan was to bake a cake. A chocolate cake. Then, at the Post Office, Postmistress Nelda delivered a cake with the mail. We have the best Post Office here in Shirley (or perhaps the best postmistress.)
