- 1 lemon, sliced into wheels
- 4 ounces Tequila
- Dash of soda water or seltzer

Step 1: Into a pitcher, put about 2 scoops of ice cubes. Squeeze in the juice of 8 Meyer lemons or 8 regular lemons in a pinch! Add several dashes of sugar cane syrup. Add the leaves of 2 fresh mint sprigs, torn into pieces. Add a few lemon wheels for garnish. Add 4 ounces Tequila and give it a stir.
Step 2: Place in the refrigerator to chill. When serving, put the ice in tall glasses, and pour the Tequila Lemonade over the top. Top off with a splash of fizzy soda water. Garnish each glass with a wheel of lemon, a vanilla bean, a sprig of mint, and a paper umbrella for added fun!
