Cocktail Friday: Spicy Lime-Cilantro Brewski

by Tokyo Terrace on July 18, 2009

There are so many things to savor in the summer time. Warm sunshine, bonfires and camping, sitting on the deck, traveling to see friends and family… I could go on and on.

I have been so busy enjoying all of these things, that I have neglected to sit down and share any new posts recently. It’s interesting how much I miss having the time to sit down and spend time in my little “space”. This blog is something I truly love.

So, today I have finally been given a few moments to sit down and share something that I hope you will all enjoy. Today’s Cocktail Friday recipe is a fun twist on a summer staple. Even if you are not a beer drinker, this drink is fun, refreshing and great to make in large batches for a BBQ get together!

IMG_1705Some of my favorite summer flavors are cilantro, lime and jalepeno. When these delicious ingredients are muddled together in the bottom of a glass and covered with light, bubbly beer, they taste even better.

Cheers!

Spicy Lime-Cilantro Brewski

1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

juice from 1/2 a lime

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/8 of a fresh jalepeno, chopped

    excellent idea. Like many modern beers, corona doesn’t have too much flavor, so its a good backdrop for the herbs.

    I’ve always wondered about taking herbs/vegetable like these (jalepeno, cilantro) and soaking a whole bunch in vodka overnight, then pour a little of the infused vodka and some lime juice into each glass. You might get stronger flavors that way.

    I lived in Tokyo from ‘84 to ‘87 and had it as part of my sales territory from ‘93 to 2000, I envy you your time in Tokyo (and Japan).

    Hi Rachael, what a great twist on the brewski. Have you ever had a Michelada? It’s not that different from your spicy lime cilantro beer.

    You can make a michelada by filling a glass with ice, squeezing a few limes into the glass, adding an ounce or so of delicious, tangy hot sauce, and filling the glass with an ice cold light beer like Dos Equis or Coronoa! Enjoy!
