Just four ingredients: Hayman’s Old Tom Gin, fresh lemon, celery juice, and simple syrup. Whether it’s the “botanically-intensive” gin or the liquified plant stalks (Tiny Lounge juices its own celery), something masks the fact that this delicious cocktail actually contains alcohol—but not in a sugary-sweet underage-drinker kind of way. Cloudy, green, a little bit mealy, and surprisingly fresh, this original cocktail brings to mind fresh cut grass on an early spring day, and downing four in a night makes you feel like you’re doing something good for your body—at least until the next morning. By then, though, you’ll convince yourself that it’s just the healthy hair of the dog you need to cure your pounding headache.
