Somewhere between a margarita and mojito, you will find this fizzy cocktail with cilantro in the spotlight.
packed cilantro leaves
washed and removed from stems
cut into quarters
raw sugar or agave nectar
In a 12 oz. glass, muddle together cilantro leaves, lime quarters, and sugar until lime juice is released and cilantro is bruised. Pour in tequila and gently stir.
Add ice to 3/4 full and top with seltzer. Gently stir once more and serve.
You can use lemon-lime soda in place of the seltzer, just eliminate the sugar from the recipe.
