History
Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray soda has been sold as a bottled soda since 1886, and was originally developed to treat immigrant children in NY. The original seltzer contained celery seeds and sugar. I love the old world celery flavor the soda contains, and it goes perfectly with the bright botanicals of gin.

Curated this slightly - changed Rangpur Gin to Gin, Tanqueray Rangpur. Changed Celery soda water to soda water.

Thanks,

Zachary

Simple and enjoyable. A nice way to bring the gins together. A good alternative to a gin and tonic.

thanks a lot--i'm a big fan of the components, and they're often overpowered by other elements in a cocktail.
