Culinary cocktails: The Stalker

Artisan's Table

by

What looks like a mild-mannered, possibly minty elixir turns out to have an unexpectedly savory twist. The punnily-named Stalker, served at downtown's Artisan's Table, throws the curveball of an assertive celery coulis into its otherwise straightforward recipe of vodka, lime and St. Germain elderflower liqueur. Topped with Fee Brothers rhubarb bitters, the cocktail catapults celery's peppery, mineral-y flavor to the front of the palate.
