Grand Velas

Cilantro Margarita

This gorgeous and flavorful cocktail is the signature drink at the Grand Velas resort in Riviera Nayarit. Because the hotel is all-inclusive, you can have as many of these as you'd like. Or, if you want a taste of Mexico at home, then try serving these are your next cocktail party. 

Directions

In a blender, place the lemon juice, cilantro, and simple syrup. Blend to combine. In an ice-filled cocktail shaker, add the Cointreau, tequila, and lemon-cilantro mixture and shake well. Dampen the rim of a cocktail glass, then coat with the brown sugar. Strain the contents of the shaker in to the glass, garnish, and serve.
