Ingrédients

3 cups of Tequila reposado
1/2 cup fresh orange juice (3-4 oranges)
1 ½ cup of fresh lime juice
1 cup of triple sec
2/3 cups of the Lemon Simple Syrup

2 cups of white sugar
1 cup of bottled water

Préparation

Makes 10 cocktails.
In the punch bowl, combine 3 cups of Tequila reposado, 1/2 cup fresh orange juice (3-4 oranges), 1 ½ cup of fresh lime juice, 1 cup of triple sec and 2/3 cups of the Lemon Simple Syrup (see below). Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. Add Ice to the punch bowl just before serving. Ladle into glasses.

For the Simple Syrup:
Use a vegetable peeler to remove the zest (yellow part only) in strips from 3 large lemons (preferably Meyer Lemons). Avoid the bitter white pith just beneath the skin. Pour 2 cups of white sugar, 1 cup of bottled water into a small saucepan. Add the zest and cook over low-medium heat until dissolved. When mixture reaches a boil, turn the heat off and cover with lid. Strain the syrup and pour it into a glass jar. Cover and refrigerate until you are ready to use. It will keep for several weeks.
