The Details
Contributed by


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


  • Blend cilantro sprigs with 151 rum in a jar. Add a pinch of ascorbic acid to preserve the color.
  • Let it sit in a cool dark place for several weeks, ideally six.
  • 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.
  • Strain the tincture through the cloth, pressing gently on the cilantro to squeeze out any liquid.
  • Gather the sides of cloth and twist it to squeeze out every drop.
  • Funnel the tincture into a small glass bottle.
