Delicious, refreshing, fizzy, and fun are all ways I'd describe my cilantro lime cooler.  And, since it has yummy tequila in it, this is not only great for your "something green", it is perfect for taco Tuesday.

You know, sometimes Tuesdays are tough. The weekend seems so far away and, hey, you deserve something delicious and relaxing!

Pairing this with an amazing southwestern omelet with peppers and black beans (for brunch, of course) would also be delectable. Brunch season is almost upon us and this cocktail, sunshine, and great food will make for an amazing day.


I try to keep these recipes simple since we are all busy and this cocktail is no different.  Featuring just a few easy ingredients and taking less than 5 minutes to make, this one certainly falls under the simple category.

To start I gather my ingredients, my mortar and pestle, and shaker. To the mortar and pestle, add 4 lime slices, 1 tablespoon of coarse turbinado sugar, and 1 handful of washed cilantro leaves. Muddle thoroughly and set aside.

Add ice to your shaker followed by the muddled ingredients and 1 shot of your favorite tequila. Now shake that shaker!
