    All Homemade Bloody Marys

    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.
    Beware of the Humble Habenero Tabasco.It is HOT but delicious.
    So for 3  x 1 litres jars.
    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.
    And he showed how to make the Tomato Juice to go with it.
    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
    I can see Great bloody Marys next week.
    Maybe Christmas morning. Yum
    Christmas is so much fun.
