Celery syrup may sound strange, but its light, sweet, grassy flavor is really lovely. Use it to flavor soda water, or as the base of a gin cocktail.
chopped celery and leaves
- In a 1-quart liquid measure or bowl, stir together celery, sugar, water and celery seed; let stand 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight.
- Strain through a fine mesh strainer. Transfer to a bottle or jar; store syrup in refrigerator for to 2 weeks.
- To Make Celery Soda or Cocktails: Pour about 2 tablespoons syrup over ice in glass. Top with chilled seltzer or club soda. Add a squeeze of lemon if you like. For a spiked drink, add an ounce or two of gin, too.
