Mix celery salt and chili powder together on a small plate.

Run lemon wedge along the rim of two glasses that can hold about 1 cup (250 mL) of liquid. Dip each glass into spice mixture to coat rims. Set aside.

Purée the next 7 ingredients in a blender.

Pour half the liquid into a shaker containing a few ice cubes and shake vigorously. Pour into one of the glasses, with or without the ice cubes. Repeat for the second glass. Decorate each cocktail with a cheese stick and the garnish of your choice. Enjoy.
