About this Cocktail

Created by Sahil Mehta of Estragon in Boston and featured on Fred Yarm's Cocktail Virgin blog. It's named after a Catalan artist that was born in 1893. Joan Miró's paintings were expressive, full of color and celebrated life. Sounds exactly like a cocktail that I would like to drink... This a very herbaceous drink that grew on me as I drank it. I didn't love the glass rimmed with celery salt & ginger honey crystals though... It's easy to get too much celery salt on the rim which suppresses the herbal flavors in this drink and makes it seem a little flat. The ginger honey crystals also start to run down the side of the glass as they are exposed to liquid, and it's not a great look for a rocks glass. I made a second one and used a dash of Scrappy's celery bitters in place of the celery salt and a splash of Fever Tree Ginger Beer in place if the Ginger Honey crystals and did not rim the glass with anything. I thought the drink had better balance that way and has a fresher appearance as well.

Ingredients:
  • 1.5 oz Cynar
  • 1.5 oz Dolin Dry Vermouth
  • 0.5 oz St. Germain
  • 0.5 oz Lime Juice
  • 1 inch Celery Stalk
  • Celery Leaves for garnish
  • Celery Salt & Ginger Honey crystals for rimming glass
Preparation:

Muddle celery stalk in shaker and add all liquid ingredients and ice. Shake and strain over a large ice cube in a rocks glass rimmed with celery salt and ginger honey crystals (I will not rim the glass in the future). Garnish with the celery leaves.
