Celery Cilantro Cocktail

Freshly squeezed lime juice, celery, cilantro and vodka are muddled together with a simple syrup for this delicious skinny cocktail.

Celery Cilantro Cocktail

I cheated and combined one tablespoon of agave syrup with one tablespoon of water in place of simple syrup. Other skinny cocktails I love are Basil Cucumber Gin Coolers, Citrus Margarita Spritzer, Mango Bellini, Iced Green Tea Mojito and Watermelon Martinis to name a few.

Lots of you are requesting more cocktails so I will be adding a few each month. You my be thinking I lost my mind with this concoction, but I must say, I loved the combination of fresh ingredients in this drink, perfect now that the weather is getting warmer!

I took a food styling/photography class a few weeks ago at the Sweet Paul workshop, what a gift Paul has for making food styling look effortless! Since taking his class I’ve been following his blog and came accros this cocktail which intrigued me. Today I finally got around to trying it and I loved it! I made some slight adaptions from Paul’s original recipe. Enjoy your weekend!

p.s – to make this a mocktail, leave out the vodka and add more seltzer for a total of 2 points plus.
