Cilantro Tincture

Cilantro Tincture



  • 1 Cup 151
  • 5-6 whole sprigs Cilantro
  • 1 pinch ascorbic acid


Step one

Blend cilantro sprigs with 151 rum in a jar. Add a pinch of ascorbic acid to preserve the color.

Step two

Let it sit in a cool dark place for several weeks, ideally six.

Step three

After it has steeped for several weeks, line a fine-mesh strainer with a layer or two of cheesecloth, and place it over a bowl.

Step four

Strain the tincture through the cloth, pressing gently on the cilantro to squeeze out any liquid.

Step five

Gather the sides of cloth and twist it to squeeze out every drop.

Step six

Funnel the tincture into a small glass bottle.
