Skip the super-sugary margarita mix and welcome the warmer weather with this twist on a classic margarita. Lime and cilantro could be no better partners. This is a great use for cilantro stems, which have all the flavor of cilantro but are often overlooked. If you have a lot of cilantro stems, feel free to use 1 cup stems in place of the mix of stems and leaves.
