Let’s be honest. We are addicted to Meyer lemons.

We’ve created martinis and salads with them as the starring role.

Jetsetter Twist

So it only makes sense that we would create our own simple syrup — with a Jetsetter twist.

First, its unique flavor. Meyer lemons have a distinct flavor —with an orange lemon combo — that is sweeter and less acidic — perfect for making simple syrup.

Second, its versatile. Meyer lemon simple syrup can be used in a variety of recipes, from cocktails to desserts. It adds a bright and refreshing flavor to any dish.

Third, a long shelf-life. Simple syrup can last for several months even a year. Trust us, you will use it quicker than that.

The Simple of Simple Syrup

Fourth, its easy to make: Making Meyer lemon simple syrup is a simple process that requires only a few ingredients. It can be made quickly and easily, even by novice cooks. (For the record, no Undercover Jetsetters are novice.)

Now, watch below to see our twist.

Ingenious or Selfish?

Is it ingenious?

Maybe because we get more use out of these luscious orbs.

However, we would say it’s more selfish so we can get more Meyer Lemon juice into our cocktails right away.

Still, our recipe here gives a distinctive, different, and complex after-taste we think you will enjoy.

And keep watching other recipes where we use this simple syrup.
