The Cucumber-Cilantro Cocktail

Cilantro is one of those herbs that you either like or hate. The semi soapy, citrus flavor imparted by the leaves of the Cilantro plant offers a unique spiciness prized in Mexican foods. Even though Cinco de Mayo is past us, we offer you the Cucumber-Cilantro Cocktail. It is a refreshing drink with a distinctively different “green” flavor. As it goes, with Cilantro, you will either love it or hate it.

The Cucumber-Cilantro Cocktail

  • 1 ½ Ounces of Good Quality Gin (We like Boodles)
  • 2 Ounces of Diced Seeded Cucumber
  • 1 Small Handful of Cilantro Leaves
  • The Juice of 1 Lime
  •  1 Teaspoon Agave Nectar

In a Shaker Glass…

Muddle the Cucumber, Cilantro and Gin Together.  Add Lime Juice, Agave and Ice.  Shake and Strain into a Chilled Martini Saucer.  Garnish with Cucumber Wheel and Cilantro Sprig.

Feeling Racy? Try Adding 2 slices of Jalapeno in the Muddle For a Hot and Spicy Accent to the Drink!
