Cilantro Lime Margaritas

Print Recipe
I combined my two loves to make these cilantro lime margaritas, cilantro and tequila. Kidding! Cilantro and lime will always be my favorite flavor combo! Now they're together in an adult beverage that I can sip!

  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves with stems
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice about 8 large and juicy limes
  • 1/4 cup agave syrup more or less to taste
  • 4 ounces tequila silver more or less to taste


  • Place cilantro into a cocktail shaker or large glass. Add in the lime juice and muddle until the cilantro is bruised. Pour in the agave and shake or stir until combined.
  • Rub the rim of the glass with lime and then dip the rim into a plate of kosher salt.
  • Fill glasses with ice and desired amount of tequilla (I use about 3-4 tablespoons or 1-1/2 to 2 ounces). Then divide the cilantro lime mixture, pouring through the strainer to catch any leaves.
  • Add a few limes and cilantro for garnish and sip!
