Tomato Martini

  Tomato Martini & more creative cocktailsShopping at Rays, our little local farm stand, is a guilty pleasure.  I go in for an onion and leave with a bushel of tomatoes.  That was yesterday's story.  I am considering just going there by bike from now on, or at least until winter. Otherwise I will need to spend a week in the kitchen making the most of all of the delights that just tickled my fancy.

This morning I awoke dreaming about the crates of eggplant and zucchini that were just begging to come home with me. The first sip of coffee reminded me of the tantalizing tomato martini my trip to the market turned into.  What a way to wind down a wicked week!

tomato Martini

  • 2 very ripe tomatoes 
  • 2 large green olives
  • 6 ounces chilled vodka (Try Tito's Handmade)
  • Tomato slices, quartered to garnish

Chop tomatoes and green olives roughly. Add vodka and marinate for about 30 minutes in the fridge.  Mash and add ice cubes.  Shake and strain into glasses.  Serve with tomato slices, as many as make you happy.  This makes 2 very healthy martini's.
