"The Garden" Cocktail Recipe

The garden features citrus vodka, we used Fox River Distilling Company's Swedish Days Citrus Vodka, and wonderful cilantro.  The combination creates summer in a glass.  The simple syrup can be adjusted to the level of sweetness you desire, and more cilantro can be added for more flavor.  This is the perfect cocktail for relaxing on a porch or deck on a summer evening.

Level of Difficulty:  moderate

Ingredients needed: citrus vodka, cilantro, lemon, simple syrup, and lemon-lime soda

Tools needed: muddler, pourer or jigger, and pour spout


1.    Cut the lemon into quarters and pick 10-15 leaves off the cilantro

2.    Squeeze one quarter of the lemon and place 10-15 cilantro leaves in the glass

3.    Pour 1 ½ ounce citrus vodka and ¼ - ½ ounce simple syrup into the glass

4.    Muddle the ingredients in the class

5.    Add ice and top with Sprite and stir

6.       Enjoy!
