For the syrup, add chopped celery to sugar and water. In a large jar with a tight-fitting lid, vigorously shake syrup ingredients until the sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Strain the syrup into a pitcher.
Add all drink ingredients to the pitcher; stir.
To rim the glass, mix salt and cumin. Put lime juice on one plate and salt mix on another plate. Dip the rims of 8 glasses into the lime juice, then into the salt mix.
Fill the glasses with ice, then add the margarita. Garnish with celery sticks.
