Now, more than ever, self-care is so important! My Cucumber Cilantro Tonic will make you feel like you’re having a day at the spa, with an added splash of tequila 😉. There’s something about the blend of cucumber, lime juice, and cilantro that puts my whole body at ease.
I absolutely love Elderflower Tonic Water as a mixer. It has a delicate, herbal flavor that contrasts the bitterness of the tonic. This easy, refreshing cocktail is exactly what you need after a long day!
- 1 mini cucumber sliced into thin rounds
- ¼ cup packed cilantro leaves and thin stems plus a few more for garnish
- Juice from 1 lime
- 1 ½ teaspoons agave
- 3 oz. tequila
- ¾ cup tonic water
- Place half of the cucumber slices, ¼ cup of the cilantro, lime juice, and agave into a cocktail shaker. Muddle together well by crushing and pressing the ingredients together with a muddling tool or even a wooden spoon. Fill with ice and add in the tequila. Shake well, then stir in the tonic water.
- Strain into cocktail glasses over ice, then garnish with extra cucumber slices and cilantro leaves. Serve and enjoy!
