Gin Hound (Death & Co. Recipe)


I love a quirky cocktail, and any drink with celery that's not a Bloody Mary is a quirky cocktail. And I think that Bloody Marys are quirky. This drink was fun because it is a spin on a Gimlet. Gin and lime are still the major players, but celery juice takes it out of the ordinary. Acacia honey (there's my little souvenir jar above) also makes the drink exotic, a bit of a combination of a Gimlet and a Bees Knees.

Celery juice is exactly what it sounds like. It isn't flavorless at all, and in fact is earthy and bitter and equally refreshing. There's not a lot of juice in celery, so expect to have to use a lot of it to get juice for one drink. I needed seven stalks! Typically you juice the celery in a food processor and use a fine mesh strainer to get the the most of the liquid away from the solids. You can further press the solids into a cheese cloth to get the rest.

  • 2 oz. gin (Citadelle used)
  • 1/2 oz. celery juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. acacia honey syrup

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and double strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
