Every once in a while, a lone bartender manages to pull off an amazing twist on a classic cocktail that shakes the mixology world, and this is the case when it comes to Celery Cup No.1. This time, it is courtesy of a bartender from San Francisco, a city which has birthed many a cocktail.

Specifically, a man by the name of H. Joseph Ehrmann created the refreshing drink in the Elixir Saloon, which is still open, and is the second oldest bar in the city.


  • 1 ½ ounces of cucumber vodka
  • 2 inches of celery stalk
  • ¼ cup of cilantro
  • 1 ounce of lemon juice
  • ¾ ounce of agave nectar
  • ½ ounce of Pimm’s
  • 1 inch of fresh cucumber
  • Ice


  1. Muddle the celery, cucumber, cilantro, and lemon juice into a pulp, in the mixing glass.
  2. Add the Pimm’s, vodka, and agave nectar.
  3. Cover in ice, and shake hard for ten seconds.
  4. Hawthorn strain the drink into a tall glass, over fresh ice.


  • Mixing glass
  • Muddling spoon
  • Hawthorn strainer
  • Tall glass

It should be noted that ice is needed twice in the recipe, so make sure that you have enough on hand. Also, for those who want a garnish, a center piece of celery is the most natural choice. The drink is a very “green” cocktail because of the amount of vegetables involved, so veggie-lovers might really find this to be a refreshing choice. The Hawthorn strainer, specifically, allows certain parts of pulp to pass through, and is normally used for fruits, but in this case, helps the drink to be as “green” as possible. Another note is the fact that the celery stalk should be close to the “heart” of the celery rather than on the periphery, as that would make the celery a little sweeter. For added sweetness, a dash of honey might do the trick. For those who care about the relationship with drinks and seasons, the Celery Cup No. 1 is most associated with spring. For those who love vegetables, are looking after their health, or simply celebrating the advent of spring, try a Celery Cup No.1 today!
