HELEN ROSNER

Fresh celery and lemon juices, Lillet, celery bitters, and gin combine for a clean and vegetal cocktail with a bright green hue. It comes to us by way of astrologer/bartender Patricia Clark Hippolyte, who developed the drink for our Mixstrology series.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. fresh celery juice
  • 12 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • Celery bitters
  • Lillet Blanc
  • Celery leaves (for garnish)

Instructions

Step 1

Combine gin, celery juice, lemon juice, a dash of bitters, and a dash of Lillet in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with celery leaves, if you like.

*To juice celery, use an electric juicer and follow manufacturer's instructions or puree roughly chopped celery stalks in a food processor until smooth. Pour over a cheesecloth-lined sieve set over a bowl; press on solids until all the juice is drained. Combine lemon and celery juices immediately to prevent browning.
