Celery Julep with Jack Daniels

You might have seen Matt and Ted Lee on Unique Eats. And you might have seen and heard them talk about celery julep, a drink associated with the American South. Speedy was so roused with the unlikely idea of making a cocktail drink with celery juice. I found it a bit odd but, heck, why not? It never hurts to try something so totally out of our comfort zone.
So, after dinner last night, Speedy took out the food processor, asked for cheesecloth and went about making what would turn out to be one of the best cocktail drinks we’ve ever had since we were old enough to drink alcohol. My mother, whose allowable alcohol intake is limited to an occasional glass of wine, rose from the couch to take a sip and would have gone on drinking if she weren’t worried about the whiskey in the drink. It is so, so good. But a few sips were all she could have. Speedy and I each had two glasses of celery julep.
Based on a recipe  from Matt and Ted Lee’s Simple Fresh Southern, as reproduced in Serious Eats.
According to the recipe source, the leftover celery syrup can be kept in the fridge in a covered container for a week.
