H. Joseph Ehrmann of Elixir Saloon in San Fransisco created this refreshing interpretation of a favorite drink, the Pimm's Cup. In the Celery Cup No. 1, he uses Square One Cucumber Vodka and Pimm's paired with cilantro, celery, and English cucumber. The result is a tantalizing spring concoction with all the freshness you could want.
In keeping with Square One's organic roots, I suggest choosing organic vegetables and herbs for the ultimate "green" cocktail.
