Lemon Meringue Instructions

The Lemon Meringue cocktail is a delightful and refreshing drink that is perfect for those who love the tangy taste of lemons mixed with the sweetness of meringue. This cocktail combines the flavors of lemon juice, simple syrup, vodka, and a touch of cream for a creamy and citrusy treat. The Lemon Meringue cocktail is easy to make and is sure to impress your guests at your next gathering or party.

To make the Lemon Meringue cocktail, start by filling a shaker with ice. Add 2 ounces of vodka, 1 ounce of lemon juice, and ½ ounce of simple syrup to the shaker. Shake well until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed and chilled.

Next, strain the cocktail into a chilled martini glass. The straining process will remove any ice shards or pulp, leaving you with a smooth and velvety cocktail.

Now comes the fun part – the meringue! To create a beautiful and tasty meringue topping, you will need some cream and sugar. In a separate mixing bowl, whip 1 cup of heavy cream until it forms soft peaks. Add 2 tablespoons of sugar to the whipped cream and continue whipping until the peaks become stiff.

Once your meringue is ready, carefully spoon it onto the top of the cocktail. You can shape the meringue into a neat dollop or get creative and make decorative patterns with a spoon.

Finally, for the finishing touch, use a kitchen torch to lightly brown the meringue. The torch will give the meringue a beautiful caramelized color and add a hint of smokiness to the cocktail.

And voila! Your Lemon Meringue cocktail is now ready to be enjoyed. The combination of the tangy lemon, creamy meringue, and hint of smokiness from the torching makes this cocktail a unique and delicious treat. Serve it at your next party or enjoy it on a cozy night in – either way, it is sure to impress and delight.

Best served in a Cocktail Glass.
