Start by muddling two pinches of cilantro in a mixing glass with the juice of two fresh lime wedges. Add 2 oz. jalapeño-infused silver tequila, 3 oz. carrot and blood orange juice blend and ¾ oz. cilantro-infused agave nectar. Add ice to fill. Box (pour in and out of a shaker once), then pour into a large rocks glass. Garnish with veggies and serve over ice for a bright and healthful spring tipple.
