So last week I watched an episode of Alton Brown's Good Eats where he dissected the bloody mary. I didn't think his recipe was entirely amazing, but one thing stood out: heirloom tomato vodka. So the next day I go out and buy some of the most amazing heirlooms (and cherry heirlooms!) I've ever seen (it was a shame to soak them in vodka, really), and dumped them in with some rather decent vodka.
Tomorrow the vodka is destined for some bloodies and I will have about 2 lbs worth of amazing vodka heirlooms. What can I do with them?
Thoughts so far:
- Blend them up and throw them in the bloody mix
- Drunken pasta
- Drunken caprese salad
- Tomato water (not sure how this would do with the vodka)
Also, any ideas or tips for not messing up my precious heirloom tomato vodka with bad bloody mary mix? Is it bad to use blended and strained fresh tomatoes in lieu of tomato juice in bloody mary mix?
