Coriander is the name of the herb genus in which the Coriandrum is named after. It was created by Alberta Straub for Cocktails on the Fly. This recipe uses agave nectar to infuse with coriander seeds to make a simple mixer that tastes like coriander.
If you have a good organic vodka, you need to cocktail that will make it shine. This is the case with Square One Organic Vodka and the Coriandrum—they certainly bring out the best in each other.
In preparing this cocktail drink, it is important to distinguish coriander seeds from cilantro leaves. Even though both are produced from the same plant, they have entirely different tastes. The coriander flavor is like a cross between sage and caraway, while cilantro has a lemon pepper flavor that is too strong for this drink. There have even been reports that cilantro has a soapy taste or is disliked by some people, so you may not find it a good option for a drink that will appeal to everyone.
