The cocktail potential of tomatoes goes far beyond the Bloody Mary. This is good news for those of us who love tomatoes but don’t care for that particular beverage. It’s August, and a wide variety of cherry tomatoes are in season (maybe even in your own backyard!). Looking across our seven giant tomato monster plants, I decided it was time to experiment a little with this sweet summer staple that I just can’t get enough of.

I hope you tried my mexican mexican coke recipe. And I hope that you trusted me when I said that if you purchased the Absolut Cilantro it called for, I would make it worth your investment. Here is another use for it. This is a refreshing late summer cocktail that gives off a wonderful aroma before you’ve even taken your first sip. It’s called a sipping shot, but of course I won’t judge you if you decide to imbibe it entirely in one swig. It’s healthy, after all!

tomodka sipping shot

4-5 cherry tomatoes (preferably homegrown)
1 ounce Absolut Cilantro vodka
2 ounces lemon-lime soda

Place the tomatoes in a cocktail shaker and muddle them. (Start slowly, or the tomato goo will squirt everywhere!) Add the vodka and shake with ice. Pour through a fine mesh strainer into a tall shot glass and add the soda; stir gently. Makes one sipping shot.
