Bombay Sapphire, little sugar syrup, little soda water, meyer lemon juice and peel from first lemon off our tree.  Delicious

I'm jealous. I live near Seattle. I tried growing a dwarf Meyer lemon tree in my living room, with large windows facing a southern exposure. It still didn't make it.

We have the tree on our deck in a large planter - I believe it was planted in May - first fruit was 7-8 lemons - there are 50+ budding now - we'll see how many survive

After dinner Saturday night with some friends, we went "curling" at the Hotel Gwen.  I enjoyed some new cocktails:

Gold Coast - Angel's Envy bourbon, lemonhead syrup, egg white and a spiced pear rinse.
Hyde Park - Bacardi black rum, pineapple, lemon, ginger and cinnamon.

2nd batch of Margaritas of the year.  First batch was made last week and disappeared quickly with a couple of wonderful house guests.  Made the 2nd batch on Sunday for pizza dinner with #1 daughter and family.  Have a little left over, and am sipping a wee dram.  And yes, I know it's not even 4PM yet.
