This post was made possible by Frieda’s Specialty Produce.  I received product to sample from Frieda’s with no obligation to post. The thoughts and opinions expressed are soley my own.

I’m a sucker for lemons. Lemon Curd being one of my favorite things ever.  I may or may not be known to just open the refridgerator door and stand there with a spoon just eating the lemon curd out of the container.  That could have been my son Christopher, but it could have been me too.

Meyer Lemons are much easier to find in New York now than they used to be way back when I started blogging. It seems as though the entire foodie community has grown in a big way, with it becoming such a fad for people to love to cook and experiement with all different kinds of ingredients. Stores seem to be better about getting products that you normally don’t find in your own area.
I made Limoncello a co-worker suggested it as a recipe to make with Meyer Lemons on my Facebook Page.  Since Limoncello only uses the yellow peel of the lemon, I had all these lemons that I needed to juice and do something else with.  So, I made this beverage with some of it and lemon bars with the remainder.  Pretty darn delicious if I do say so myself.   🙂  

Meyer Maple Brandy Shooters

By Shelby Law Ruttan
Meyer Maple Brandy Shooters


  • 1/4 cup Brandy
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons Pure Maple Syrup
  • 2 tablespoons well strained Meyer Lemon Juice
  • tiniest pinch of grey sea salt


  1. Place all ingredients In a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well.
    Pour into two shooter glasses that have been chilled in the freezer. Shoot!
  2. Notes: I use light amber syrup in all my recipes. Using a darker syrup will
    produce a deeper syrup flavor. Go for it if that is what you like. I just prefer light
    amber. Number of glasses will depend on the shooters you use.

Yield: 2 shooters
Prep Time: 00 hrs. 05 mins.

Total time: 5 mins.

    I thought I left a comment here the other day, but I guess it never went through. This look great! I'm totally obsessed with anything lemon, and the addition of maple makes these shooters perfect for this time of year!
