Like most people my phone holds most of my life… most importantly my pictures. I clean my phone archives out at least once a week and have over a thousand photos that I look back at regularly. How can this be? The majority of them are pictures of recipes that I want to make and considering today’s lineup dated back to last March, I figured a year was long enough to be looking at this guy. I bit the bullet (not hard to do considering I had everything in my fridge), and whipped up this magical concoction.
Cilantro is a top herb contender for me (sorry Jeff!) but I rarely use it in drinks. Jokes on me, because mixed with a little mint (also a surprising mixture for me) and some citrus this drink hit the spot. Perfect for the spring season ahead… I’d add this to your list for pool parties in the next few months.
