Seems like everyone is interested in greening up their cocktails these days. And what better day to start than Earth Day? You might have to drink a heckuva lot for your booze intake to create a markedly smaller carbon footprint by going green, but it’s all about the, ahem, spirit of the endeavor.
The Cilantro Martini
2 oz TRU organic lemon vodka
1/2 oz Right gin
1/2 oz simple syrup (or to taste)
juice of 1 organic lime
pinch of freshly grated ginger
fistful of fresh cilantro
Combine the ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake hard. Strain into a chilled martini glass, and garnish with a cilantro tip.
To yours–and Mother Earth’s–health.
