Absolut Cilantro

I don't know what possessed me to buy this. Actually, no, I do. I love love love love fresh cilantro. You can't add enough of it to ceviche or Mexican food in my opinion. So I guess I figured that cilantro vodka was a good idea.

We tried it a couple of weeks ago and YUP it tastes exactly like fresh cilantro. I wouldn't say that it is bad because it does truly taste like cilantro but damned if I know what to make with it. The straight flavor is too much even for me.

My husband said that it would probably be great in a Bloody Mary which is all well and good but I don't drink them. I am thinking of maybe trying it with some lemonade and club soda.

Has anyone else tried this stuff? Any ideas for what to do with it? At this point, I'm seriously considering just adding it to steak or chicken marinades when I'm out of fresh cilantro.
