I’m looking out my window on a kind Memorial Day, enjoying my “adult” beverage. I’m hoping everyone finds the time to enjoy a Lavender Lemon Drop with fresh Limoneira Lemons. It got me to wondering if everyone takes the time on a beautiful spring day to treat themselves to a properly prepared cocktail. So, I’m bringing home a recent article I read at Food52.com. With the sudden burst of citrus in my garden, I thought about how appropriate it would be to share some of the overlooked tools laying around in the kitchen.
Do you know about a reamer? Here are a few examples.
Or maybe for those space conscious:
I remember watching my mom use the reamer, but maybe I’ve gotten away with using my fork, or just squeezing the juice. To maximize the juice, I’d like to retro my use of citrus and maybe I’ll get back to using the reamer.
If you’re feet are up, with a drink in one hand, and your smartphone in the other, consider using your leftover lemon juice with these recipe favorites:
