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, Mango Bellini and Iced Green Tea Mojito 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 across 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.

This looks like a nice fresh change from a mojito.
I tried a Melon tulsi margarita the other day and it was excellent from the first sip, but I had to power myself to consume it after that. BUT, then again, one of my preferred home made drinks is complete of oatmeal so I'm prepared to provide this one a try too.
Really looking forward to more healthy cocktail receipes, now excuse me while I go make this one! Thank you so much!
Very nice healthy recipe for Summer! I'd love to try this!
OMG. Where has this cocktail been all my life? THANK YOU.
This sounds so refreshing and different..I love cilantro and celery tastes really good in a fresh juice so why not with some vodka? I can't wait to try it..looking forward to the warmer weather and all your skinny cocktail recipes, thanks Gina!
I just made this,and it was very yummy.
A great lite cocktail for summer, might try it with cucumber next time.
Thank you for a great recipe. I will try this is my juicer and see how it works. Sounds yummy:)
Hmmmm….this definitely has me intrigued, but I'm a bit weary. I tried a Watermelon basil margarita the other day and it was good from the first sip, but I had to force myself to drink it after that. BUT, then again, one of my favorite homemade juices is full of celery so I'm inclined to give this one a try too. Decisions, decisions…
Girrrrrl, this is my kinda cocktail! I can't wait to make it!

Can't wait to try this!!! Looks so yummy…I love both celery and cilantro.
Lauren, I am but wasn't sure how to do it with a cocktail. Using the n.i. it only came out to 2 pts. Not sure if that's correct.
That sounds just about right. I know 1.5 oz of Vodka is 2 points, so using division, 1 oz should be about 1.34 points. The cilantro, lime juice, and I think the celery should be 0. I think all sugars are 1 point per tablespoon, so adding that extra point gets 2.34, rounded up to 2.5 points.
Hi Gina! Are you not including the old points anymore? ~Lauren
Sweet! I can never find enough uses for cilantro, and this looks like the perfect combination.
