I’ve been wanting to experiment with celery bitters for a while. I love the idea of celery in cocktails, but I tend to run from Bloody Mary’s because I’m not big on horseradish in my vodka. (Not that I don’t love horseradish, it’s just that I prefer not to drink it).
1.5 oz port
3 oz pomegranate cranberry juice
1.5-2 oz seltzer water
7 drops celery bitters
cherry garnish (or celery)
It has a sparkly, fruity flavor with a savory hint of celery. Yum!
A lot of drinks are paired with the seasons. Gin ‘n Tonics in summer, Peppermint Schnapps in the winter, etc. It’s nearing the end of a harsh winter, and now we have a few semi-warm moments shuffled in between snow days. So, in honor of the most annoying new weather term of the year, I’m gonna call this is a Spring Vortex cocktail.
