C&T (Celery & Tonic)
This savory cocktail is like Gin & Tonic 2.0—the green juice edition. Inspired by the two-ingredient staple, this modern take keeps the simplicity of the original, but swaps the gin for the Brooklyn-made Tokki Black Label soju, a high-octane spirit distilled from organic rice, inspired by traditional Korean liquors (Chumchurum or Charm “Deep Ocean Water” Island Soju are also great options). It gets its vivacious green hue from a celery shrub, made with fresh-pressed celery juice, rice wine vinegar and sugar. This clean, crisp drink is vibrant, slightly funky and clean. Serve it before a meal or throughout—it pairs perfectly with spicy foods and fatty meats.
- 1.5 oz Tokki Soju
- 0.75 oz Celery Shrub
- Tonic Water
Add the soju and celery shrub to a Collins glass with ice.
