I love cilantro. Love it. Love it. Now, while I understand that this is a controversial herb, according to this article, those who dislike cilantro can’t help it. It’s cool. If you don’t like it, I’m sorry, but if you do, this recipe is awesome. For those who can taste the delicate herb, listen up:
There is a cilantro flavored vodka out there. Yup. Awesome.
I bought the tiny bottle on a whim to see if I would like it, so this recipe was all I could come up with considering the ingredients of my pantry (which are still few, seeing as I just moved in). Now that I know how delicious the vodka is, I will be buying a larger bottle and making new concoctions.
Cilantro vodka [$1.50 for a small bottle]
1 bunch cilantro [$1]
1 lime [.50 cents]
Muddle (crush) cilantro leaves and a lime wedge in the bottom of a glass. Add ice and cilantro vodka. Top with sprite. Stir to combine and serve.
I also added a dash of chilli powder to spice things up in the glass.
A delectable cocktail for final nights of summer and Taco Tuesdays.
