Thirsty Thursday: Granddad's M&M

As I previously mentioned my Granddad was up visiting from California over the holidays. While staying at my parent's house, his number one job was to be in charge of happy hour. This is a job he took very seriously and made sure to whip up a new cocktail each night. While I was home, he created this beauty for us. It was so delicious, I sucked down two in no time at all. And the best part is that it only has three ingredients!

Granddad's M&M (Myers's Rum & Meyer Lemons)

Makes 4 cocktails

4 oz. Meyer Lemon Juice
8 oz. Myer's Rum
1 1/3 oz. Orgeat or Almond Syrup, or more to taste

Shake it up, serve over ice and garnish with a Meyer Lemon peel! Cheers!


  1. Yummy! I love anything with Almond flavoring and just realized I have all those ingredients at home! YES!

  2. He is so cute!! Lucky girl - most handsome bartender around! :)

  3. Oh yeah this looks good! Cheers to your granddad for this awesome cocktail!

  4. What a cool guy! I hope someday my own grandkids are bragging about what sweet cocktails I make! Cheers to that!
