2 cups chopped celery (about 4 stalks), plus celery leaves for garnish

2/3 cup sugar

2 cups gin, chilled

1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (from about 6 lemons), chilled, plus lemon slices for garnish

1 cup fresh tangerine juice (from about 6 tangerines), chilled

Chilled seltzer, for serving


  1. Combine the chopped celery, sugar and 2/3 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves, 1 to 2 minutes. Let cool, about 30 minutes.
  2. Strain the celery syrup into a pitcher and add the gin, lemon juice and tangerine juice. Pour into ice-filled glasses and top with seltzer. Garnish each with a lemon slice and some celery leaves.
