Oaxacon Daisy Cocktail #FallFlavors

Disclosure:  I received sponsor products for use in creating recipes for this week's Fall Flavors Event.  All thoughts and opinions are strictly my own.  I received no monetary compensation for this post.


This lovely cocktail is simple and delicious.  A blend of fresh meyer lemon juice, tequila and cointreau, this cocktail is the perfect start to a relaxing weekend.  


Happy Friday everyone.  This is the last day for #Fall Flavors Week.......

Friday Fall Recipes


I decided to share this cocktail after receiving these gorgeous meyer lemons from Melissa's Produce.  This recipe came from Imbibe Magazine.  It is simple and delicious.  I believe, from what I can find out, that it was created by Chris Ojeda of the SOHO House in Los Angeles. 

The recipe calls for Mezcal.  I used 1800 Silver Tequila.  I have never had Mezcal and was unable to locate any.  The recipe says that it lends a smoky flavor to the cocktail.  My cocktail is not smoky but it is bright and flavorful.  The recipe also asked for Cointreau.  I used Grand Marnier.  


I hope you have enjoyed this Fall Flavors Week as much as I.  Please remember to scroll down past my recipe for the chance to win one of six great packages offered by our sponsors.
