Spring's Best Cocktail

Even though the weather is still a brisk 50 something degrees here in the Northeast, we like to pretend it's spring--we've started using our new white patent Cole Hahn wallet,

are wearing coral polish. That's Sephora by OPI's Special Request below.

and have traded our red wine for fresh cocktails. Here's one that sounds like a balmy breeze, sundresses and daffodils combined in a glass from mixologist Pablo Moix of STK in Los Angeles: the Maestro Maria Verde.

Here's the recipe so you can make it at home:

3 - 2" slices of celery

Loose handful of cilantro

2 Oz Maestro Dobel tequilla

3/4 Oz fresh squeezed lime juice

3/4 Oz simple syrup

1 Oz ginger ale

In a pint glass muddle celery and cilantro, then add all spirits and mixers. Shake vigorously for 6 seconds, add ginger ale. Strain over fresh ice in Collins glass. Garnish with a celery stalk.
