- Juice 1 tablespoon of juice from the lemon; set aside juice. Use the juiced lemon to rub the rim of a tall glass; dip rim into a shallow dish of celery salt. Fill the glass with ice.
- In a sturdy glass or cocktail shaker, use a muddling tool or end of a wooden spoon to crush and stir cherry tomatoes, green and yellow peppers, hot pepper sauce, and reserved lemon juice. Add aquavit and ice; shake well. Strain into prepared glass and top with celery soda. Garnish with a thin slice of celery stalk. Makes 1 cocktail.
From the Test Kitchen
For a nonalcoholic cocktail, omit Aquavit. Add 1/2 cup Cel-Ray® soda to the cocktail shaker with ice. Stir, do not shake, and strain into prepared glass.
If you can't find the Cel-Ray® soda, substitute 1/3 cup of chilled ginger ale and 1/8 teaspoon crushed celery seed.
