Southern Exposure

  • TOTAL TIME: 5 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 1 drink

Mixologists are juicing vegetables to add bright, fresh flavors to drinks. This riff on the classic Southside is from San Francisco's Alembic Bar.

  1. 1 large green celery rib
  2. 1 1/2 ounces gin
  3. 1/2 ounces simple syrup (see Note)
  4. 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  5. Mint leaves, plus a sprig for garnish
  6. Ice cubes
  1. Finely grate the celery rib into a mesh strainer set over a small bowl. Press on the pulp to extract the juice. Pour 3/4 ounce of the celery juice into a shaker and add the gin, simple syrup, lime juice and mint leaves. Add a large handful of ice; close the shaker and shake vigorously. Strain the cocktail into a chilled martini glass and garnish with the mint sprig.
Notes To make simple syrup, simmer 1/2 cup of granulated sugar with 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan over moderate heat, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. The simple syrup can be refrigerated in a covered container for up to 1 month.
