Spring has sprung and it is time to discover light and refreshing cocktails to be sipped in the sunshine. Most often used as a garnish, celery is often overlooked as an ingredient. Its vegetal aroma and flavor is off-putting to some but combined with a touch of acid and a bit of sweetness, then spread evenly with vodka, it creates a backbone of flavor that is at once robust and refreshing.
2 Ounce (Abslout Vodka)
1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
1. Into a mixing tin, add vodka and celery. Muddle well.
2. Add lime juice, simple syrup and ice. Shake well.
3. Strain into a Collins glass filled with ice cubes, top with soda and enjoy!

Its herbal aroma and flavor may be off-putting for some, but the sweet-citrusy tang and elegant presentation will definitely score a point. Vodka forms the spine of this celery topped drink.
