It's Christmas and it's also preparation time for the Summer Holidays...Inspired by Alton Brown on Food TV, I am making Tomato Infused Vodka, to make Bloody Marys. Also a fresh Tomato Juice to serve with it. This is so simple and I think it is going to be fantastic.
I bought 1700 mls of Vodka, doesn't have to be the very flash stuff.
But please no kerosene!
1 kg of fresh red tomatoes
Cut into 8 and place in the 3 jars
Top up with the Vodka and leave for at least a week.
Shake once a day.
Quick as flash
But a warning
I used the Habanero Tabasco, I think 1 teaspoon of that would be enough
It's pretty fiery. So I had to put in a spoonful of sugar to help balance the heat.
Next time I will get the normal Tabasco.
I will post again when it is all complete.
Just put into the blender
800 gms Cherry Tomatoes
2 teaspoons Tabasco
3 teaspoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 tsp Sea salt
Blend for 1 1/2 minutes.
It will store in the fridge for up to a month.
I actually made my juice into ice blocks
and will make a new batch... Not quite so hot
Maybe Christmas morning. Yum
