Cilantro Lime Rum Cooler 

Here is the Cilantro recipe. Only change I make is that I blend the ice with the first blend. OK, 2 changes. I don't blend it the second time, I just hand mix it. The second time you blend it, it makes a lot of froth probably because of the lime juice. I also do the entire Cilantro stick, not just the leaves and I do 2 batches with the same cilantro leaves and I mix the 2 batches, why waste.

Cilantro Lime Rum Cooler

1 cup firmly packed cilantro leaves
1 quart iced spring water
1/2 cup superfine sugar
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice, about 5 limes
1 cup rum
1 cup chrushed ice
In blender on high speed, puree cilantro leaves, 1 cup water and sugar for 2 minutes. Pour mixture through a fine mesh strainer into a pitcher. Discard any fibrous residue. Return mixture to blender. Add remaining water, lime juice, rum, and crushed ice. Blend at high speed for 30 seconds. Serve immediately. Garnish with cilantro leaves. Serves 4
