Peach + Cilantro Sodas

Hey friends! Sorry for being MIA! I've been so busy! I had Ragnar*, then went backpacking, then flew to Sonoma for my bachelorette party(!), then got sick, then blah blah blah yadda yadda etcetera etcetera PEACH + CILANTRO SODA! 

Peach + Cilantro Sodas // Loves Food, Loves to Eat Last weekend we saw Book of Mormon, the musical (so good), then went to dinner at Terra Plata afterward, where I had an amazing house-made peach cilantro soda (plus a million other delicious things).
I've been dreaming about that soda since Saturday you guys. Fizzy, peachy, and not-too-sweet with juuuuust a hint of cilantro in the background. Such a small hint that you can tell something herbaceous is goin on, but you might not even guess right away what it is. Unless you're one of those crazy cilantro-tastes-like-soap people, then maybe you'll figure it out immediately. But really, if you are one of those people, you probably don't want to drink a peach + cilantro soda anyway. 

Peach + Cilantro Sodas // Loves Food, Loves to Eat If you aren't one of those cilantro-tastes-like-soap people, then you should probably definitely make this. It's easy and summery, and I won't even try to stop you from adding bourbon. Or rum. Or gin. Or even vodka, if that's your thing. 

Peach + Cilantro Sodas // Loves Food, Loves to Eat Cheers! I missed you guys! Summer is super busy and wedding countdown craziness is in full effect, but I promise I'm not abandoning you. Now, go make some bourbons! I mean, sodas!

Peach + Cilantro Soda
Makes about 4 large glasses

5 ripe peaches, rinsed and halved, pits removed
1/3 cup cilantro (not chopped-- a small handful)
Juice from 1 lemon
1.5 tablespoons agave 
Soda water

Add peaches, cilantro, lemon, and agave to blender, and blend until smooth. In a Vitamix it gets super smooth, but if you have tiny chunks thats ok! Taste, and add a bit more sweetener or lemon if you desire - it will be diluted from the soda water, so keep that in mind. Fill your glass just over 1/3rd full with peach mix, the next third with ice, and top off with soda water. Stir and serve! Note: It may start to separate a bit, just give it another stir. 

Store extra peach mix in fridge.
