Dr. I.J. Douglass’s Celery Bitters

Lemnos, Greece: While exploring a shrine to hephaestus, Dr. I.J. Douglass found a Cabeiri legend that described celery as the blood of their father Kadimos. Traditionally, celery was used as a garland to adorn the champion of the Isthmian Games, held the second and fourth year of the ancient Olympiad. Chariot racing and pankration have been lost to the ages but the spicy sweet flavors of celery is here to stay – and to be toasted.

Use 3-4 dashes with your favorite spirit and a splash of soda or syrup. This concoction is delightful with gin drinks and elevates most cocktails with a warming spice melange. The groundwork laid by the Berber traders centuries ago allowed these beautiful spices to move across the world. Let the power of nature’s natural curative ingredients elevate your constitution and relieve your stress! The spice must flow!
