Coriander is bright and citrusy, warm with subtle floral notes. Ancient Sanskrit texts, Egyptian papyrus records and the bible all mention coriander. Coriander seeds have been found in Egyptian tombs of the 21st Dynasty as a symbol of eternal love. This citrus based drink infused with a subtle coriander-honey syrup is the perfect way to show yourself some love this winter season.
2 cara cara oranges
1 meyer lemon
2 tablespoons coriander-honey syrup or to taste
1 cup of water
½ cup honey
2 tablespoons coriander seeds
Grind the coriander seeds with a mortar and pestle. In a small saucepan bring the water to a boil. Add the honey, stir until it dissolves. Now add the ground coriander and continue to cook for a minute. Remove the pot from the heat and strain out the coriander. The syrup will keep in a glass jar or bottle in the fridge for a couple of weeks.
Juice the citrus. Combine with two tablespoons of the coriander-honey syrup and top with seltzer.
