ginger cilantro margarita

July 1st, 2011

It’s Friday! Woohoo! I’m super jazzed to be heading to Michigan for a long weekend to spend time with family and friends. It’ll be the first time I’ll flying with my dog, Maude, so I’m a little nervous. If my flight weren’t so dang early in the morning, I’d definitely make myself a nice little cocktail like this one to calm my nerves, but instead I’ll just be all hopped up on coffee and hope that Maude is her normal, chilled-out self.

I hope you all have a most excellent weekend! Cheers!

ginger cilantro margarita
makes 1 cocktail

1 ounce lime juice
1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro (when it’s squished together it should be about the size of Tablespoon)
1.5 ounces 100% agave tequila
1/2 ounce Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur
1/4 ounce agave syrup

1 teaspoon salt, for the rim

Sprinkle about a teaspoon of salt on a plate. Rub the rim of a glass with a lime then dip in salt.
In the bottom of a cocktail shaker, muddle the cilantro and lime juice together.
Add enough ice to fill the shaker and the remaining ingredients.
Shake vigorously for 10 seconds.
Strain into the salt rimmed glass filled with ice. Enjoy!

    Nice to see cilantro in a drink. I tried to make cilantro simple syrup and it was a fail. Now I know I need to go with direct application. Thanks and Cheers!
