144/365/Food in 55/Some Cocktails (no haiku)

Celery Gimlet*
2.5 ounces gin
1 ounce celery juice
.5 ounce lime juice
.5 ounce green chartreuse
.5 oz apple cider vinegar
3 dashes celery bitters
Shake and pour.

Klio Thyme**
2 parts Grey Goose vodka
1 part St. Germain
.75 or a tiny bit more lemon juice
Shake and pour.
Top with fresh thyme.

*Eventide (Portland, Maine)
**My own (French) invention in honor of a friend’s recently departed pet.


  1. How do I get celery juice?

    I want to try both of these. (I would name the second Cleo Thyme, in honour of my dearly departed pet.)

  2. I live such a bland life... I need to shake/stir things up with more cocktails.

  3. I wonder if a Klio Thyme would help my cold. My sister has me drinking a thyme-based tonic, which is supposed to help my cough, but instead makes me want to DRINK ANYTHING ELSE. Your concoction sounds very nice.

  4. I was going to say I wish I'd had these recipes when I was making interesting/delicious cocktails for my family, but on second thought, celery juice? Celery bitters? We don't even have a Whole Foods or Trader Joe's here.

    1. We don't either. The celery I juice myself. The bitters were purchased from afar, I'm sure.

  5. Rats, now I need to go buy some St. Germain
