Author Notes: I am home in Columbus for the Thanksgiving holiday and yesterday got to visit a new Jewish deli-style restaurant, Izzy and Mo's, for lunch with my mother. We each had iterations on a corned beef sandwich, and I ordered their house made celery soda to drink. It was refreshing and delicious, and especially relevant this time of year - I'll be chopping and sauteeing celery tomorrow for my mom's traditional celery stuffing, so the aroma of celery will always remind me of Thanksgiving. I recreated the celery soda last evening, and sipped on it this morning as mom and I were preparing a squash soup to start Thursday's meal. Enjoy! —Emily | Cinnamon&Citrus
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 large rib of celery
- 4 cups club soda
- In a small saucepan, combine the water and sugar and bring to a simmer over medium high heat, just until the sugar dissolves.
- Slice the celery on the bias quite thinly - to get the most surface area possible. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the celery slices. Let steep until completely cool (about 4 hours). This makes about 1 cup of simple syrup.
- In a glass, put about 4 tablespoons celery simple syrup over ice and top with 1 cup chilled club soda (you can adjust to your taste).
