You know, sometimes DIY Cocktails and I have trouble naming these cocktails we come up with. In this case, the possible names included:

Patty McCelery
The Celery VirGIN
Cell Block
Luck O’ The Celery
Celery McGinington

Irish Spring, however, sounded about perfect for this little green cocktail, which is just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a mixture of gin, lime, mint, and celery juice.

The celery juice may sound like a surprising addition, but trust me, it’s good.

Irish Spring Cocktail

(makes one cocktail)

Ingredients:

    1 oz celery juice from 1-2 ribs of celery
    1 1/2 oz gin
    1/2 oz simple syrup
    1/2 oz lime juice
    5-6 mint leaves


Directions:

Grate the celery into a bowl. Then put the celery in a sieve over the bowl and mash until you get all the juice out of the celery. (You can also do this in a blender or juicer.)

Juice 2-3 limes for fresh lime juice.

Muddle the mint, simple syrup, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Add in the celery juice, gin, and ice. Shake thoroughly and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with mint. Cheers!
