2 1⁄2 oz Vodka, Absolut
1 oz Simple syrup (Cilantro infused, see note.)
1 oz Egg white
3 spg Cilantro

Place 3 sprigs of cilantro in a mixing glass and press with muddler to release oils. Add remainder of ingredients and dry shake vigorously for 15 seconds to emulsify egg white. Add ice and shake again for five seconds to chill. Fine strain into a chilled coupe glass and drip three drops of bitters in a row. Pull a martini pick through drops to make three hearts.


To make cilantro syrup: Add one bunch of cilantro to 1qt/1qt ratio of sugar and boiling water. Dissolve sugar, strain out solids, cool to room temperature and store in refrigerator for three days. A fresh and silky textured citrus and cilantro cocktail. Egg white can be omitted and bitters added to the shake for and equally tasty cocktail.
