Meet Alex and Andy

Alex and Andy say Eat Your Dang Vegetables!! And try this Kombucha cocktail:

2 oz. Szechuan Infused Beefeater

.5 oz Celery Juice

.5 oz Honey Syrup

.5 oz Lime Juice

3 oz CGLT (Carrot Ginger Lime Turmeric Kombucha)

Shake gin, honey, celery and lime over ice briefly. Top with Kombucha and strain into a collins glass with a celery stalk and ice. Garnish with a parsley bunch.

To make the szechuan infused gin, put szechuan peppercorns in your favorite gin for a bit (we recommend infusing for less than an hour.)
