Curated slightly - changed

Curated slightly - changed the unit on the cilantro to "leaf", and removed the note - we assume fresh ingredients already. Two quick questions: Is the tamarind paste added with the orange juice? It seems to be omitted from the instructions. Cocktails that are not your invention, but are taken from an authoritative source should be marked "Authentic" instead of "Original". I can go back and change these, if you'd like.
