Odyssey Number Ten

Adapted from a recipe by Humberto Marques, 1105 Cocktail Bar, Copenhagen, Denmark

“In Homer’s Iliad, the horses of the Myrmidons graze on wild celery that grows in the marshes of Troy, and in Odyssey. Take an epic voyage to witness the pairing [of] flavors between the strawberries and the celery, along with the perfect gin to be mixed with the fresh and fruity tasting notes of Lillet Rouge,” Humberto Marques.

Odyssey Number Ten

50 ml (1.7 oz) Tanqueray No. TEN gin

20 ml (.6 oz) Lillet Rouge

30 ml ( 1 oz) fresh lemon juice

3 fresh strawberries

fresh celery

20 ml (.7 oz) honey

1 celery leaf, as garnish

Muddle together thoroughly the celery and the strawberries, then add ice, and the remaining ingredients.  Shake well and strain into a chilled wine glass.  Add the garnish.

gaz sez: Strawberries and celery?  YES! Strawberries and Celery!  This drink is nothing short of fabulous.  Wee done (again), Humberto.
