*Cilantro Syrup (1:1): Heat equal weights of water and sugar in a saucepan. Stir frequently until sugar is dissolved. Turn heat off and add 3-5 sprigs of fresh cilantro to the hot syrup. Stir occasionally then let steep for 10-15 minutes. When the pan is cool enough to touch, move it to the fridge and allow it to finish infusing for 12- 24 hours. Remove the cilantro and strain the syrup. Label, date, and store the syrup in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 month.
