Absolut Cilantro

25 Sep


I fucking love cilantro. Apparently some people are genetically predisposed to hating it, and that is what genocide is for. Kidding. The idea of a cilantro-flavored vodka seemed a bit odd to me but if done well it could be an awesome addition to many summertime drinks. Upon closer inspection the bottle reveals it is cilantro and lime flavored. Sounds a little shady but I approached it with an open mind, mouth, and liver.

Wowza is this stuff good. You definitely taste more of the limey-ness than the cilantro but it’s not sweet and it’s very refreshing. I would mix this with either tonic for a light, summery drink or as a lime flavor addition to any lightly-flavored beer.

    I consider the love of cilantro to be a gift. My husband thinks it tastes like soap. I love it on pizza, eggs, sandwiches, tomatoes … even just by itself if there’s nothing to put it on.
    Now I’ve gotta try a bloody mary with cilantro vodka. Thanks!

      I keep thinking jalapeno-something would work well with it also.
