Visiting the Farmer's Market today, I couldn't resist the giant bunch of Cilantro for only $1.50. I thought, "how can I make a cocktail with this?"
I muddled a large bunch of Cilantro in a mixing glass with lime juice, simple syrup & some cubed cucumber. Added some Angostura Orange Bitters and Gin. Shook it hard with some ice. Double stained into a chilled Coupe Glass. Great Fresh Flavors in this Summery Cocktail!

Enjoy outside in the late afternoon sunshine with good friends and good music.
