Sunday Maria!

Have you ever tried Tomato Water?.

It is a very light, crisp and tangy alternative to tomato juice. And it makes for a Ridiculously delicious Bloody Mary!

I used:

  • 60mls Reposado Tequila
  • 250mL Tomato Water*
  • 30mL Lime Juice
  • 5 dashes of @tabasco (Chipotle)
  • 5 dashes of Worcestershire Sauce
  • Celery salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh Lemon thyme

Place all ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake with ice until combined. Strain into your favourite cocktail glass and serve with spicy salami, black olives, stuffed baby peppers and fresh thyme.

To make the tomato water you will need:

  • 1kg Very Ripe Tomatoes
  • 1/3 Cup Verjuice
  • Muslin
  • 2 teaspoons salt flakes

How To:

Roughly cut the tomatoes into large dice.

Place the tomatoes, salt, Verjuice into a food processor and whiz on high speed until combined. Around 30 seconds.

Line a large sieve with muslin place over a 1 litre bowl or jug. Pour the tomato mixture into the sieve, bring the ends up and tie them with string.

Hang until you have approximately ½ litre of tomato water.
