Virtuous celery juice becomes delightfully indulgent when spiked with gin. Here, it’s also combined with fresh lemon juice, Lillet Blanc, and celery bitters for a clean and vegetal cocktail with a bright green hue. The recipe for this verdant martini comes to us by way of astrologer and bartender Patricia Clark Hippolyte.

  • 1 celery stalk, plus leaves for garnish
  • ½ oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 dash celery bitters
  • 1 dash Lillet Blanc


Step 1

Transfer to a cheesecloth-lined sieve set over a bowl and press on the solids until all the juice is drained. (You should have about 1 ounce celery juice.) Add the lemon juice immediately to prevent browning.

Step 2

To a cocktail shaker filled halfway with ice, add the celery juice mixture, gin, celery bitters, and Lillet, and shake until chilled. Strain into a chilled coupe or martini glass and garnish with the celery leaves.
