Cocktail Hour: Celery Cilantro Cocktail

A Feteful Life: Celery Cilantro Cocktail

Despite today’s plummeting temperatures in our neck of the woods, I swear that spring is right around the corner and this fizzy celery cilantro cocktail is a perfect fit for the season. Honestly, its a bit of an odd taste combination at first. But it’s really a nice, light drink that will keep you in those spring skinny jeans. Plus, it’s green and would be a great kickoff to a St. Patty’s Day celebration.

Celery Cilantro Cocktail (from Skinnytaste)

1 ounce Absolut Citron
3 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
2 tbsp simple syrup (or 1 tbsp agave, 1 tbsp water)
5-inch piece celery, chopped
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 tbsp seltzer

In a mixing glass or pitcher, combine celery and cilantro and muddle together with vodka, lime juice and simple syrup. Pour through a fine mesh strainer into a glass filled with ice and top with selzter. Garnish with celery greens and cilantro.
