Challenged with okra, Vie bartender Mike Page pickles it, then uses it as the base of a green cocktail named for the Ghostbusters' mascot, Slimer.

To pickle the okra, combine 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1 1/2 cups water, and 1 1/2 cups of white vinegar (Page used a lemon-infused white balsamic he'd picked up in Michigan). Bring to a boil, then pour into a quart-size canning jar over okra, peeled and sliced, and quartered lemons.
