Happy Earth Day! Now, Let’s Celebrate With a Drink


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.

Try this green cocktail from Cornelius, made with TRU vodka (see the brand’s carbon footprint analysis here):

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.
