    Fresh Tomato Bloody Mary

    Ripe summer flavors. Not just for brunch anymore!

    • 6 cherry tomatoes
    • 1 basil leaf
    • Pinch of fresh oregano
    • Pinch of salt
    • Pinch of ground black pepper
    • Dash of Tabasco sauce
    • Dash of Worcestershire sauce
    • Juice of 1 lemon wedge
    • 1 1/2 ounces citrus vodka (may substitute silver tequila)
    • 1 oregano sprig (for garnish)

    In mixing glass, muddle 5 tomatoes, basil, oregano, salt, black pepper, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and lemon juice. Add citrus vodka. Add ice to tin. Shake well. Double-strain into cocktail glass using the strainer on the shaker while pouring contents through the sieve placed over the glass.

    Garnish with an oregano sprig speared through remaining cherry tomato.

    The Bloody Mary was created in the 1920s by Fernand “Pete” Petiot, a bartender at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris, France. The name stuck because it reminded a patron of a woman named Mary from The Bucket of Blood Club in Chicago. In the 1930s, Petiot unsuccessfully tried to change the name of this famous cocktail to the Red Snapper.
