Fresh celery juice colors the Green Hornet at Trenchermen in Chicago, where Tona Palomino, a transplant from New York’s WD~50, mans the bar. The verdant cocktail is the dangerously drinkable lovechild of a gin-and-tonic/gimlet/celery ménage. Palomino shakes the gin and juice with lime, simple syrup and celery bitters, and tops it with Fever Tree tonic. It has a G&T’s freshness, bolstered by celery and lime, with its edges smoothed by a touch of sweetness.
