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!

    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!
