What to do with all these meyer lemons?

There's no such thing as too many fragrant items. When balanced properly, it brings a welcome complexity to a classic drink.

Anyway, if those Chatreusian monks can put 130 herbal extracts in their liqueur, then little ole rmb204 can mix four different things into his margarita.

Take the recipe for a spin. Let me know what can be balanced better. I'm open to suggestions and always welcome a chance to fine tune the recipe.

2 oz tequila
.5 oz key lime juice
.5 oz Meyer lemon juice (or as they're known in Texas: Valley lemons)
.5 oz Grand Marnier
.5 oz agave nectar
.5 oz cucumber juice
4-5 dashes Bar Keep Lavender Spice bitters
Shake. Serve up. Garnish with lime twist or wheel. Powdered salt rim optional.

My personal recipe. Try it out. Holler and tell me what you think. If nothing else, it's a reason to pick up a bottle of lavender bitters (one can never have too many bottles).
