Just talked to my daughter in Florida and she was telling me about a recipe her husband brought home from Texas last weekend: I have googled and you can find similar recipes on the net.

cherry or grape tomatoes
vodka
lemon juice
sherry wine (optional)
flavored salts

using a tooth pick punch holes in the tomatoes. Place the tomatoes in a bowl with the vodka, lemon juice and sherry. Let soak for a couple of hours (no more)

in small bowls place various flavors of salt (celery, cayene pepper, garlic or whatever) Dip tomatoes in salt and you have your bloody Mary. This is great with a large group of people, they can choose which salts they want. Actually her husband had this at a family birthday party. (no, not a kids party)

Seriously I am going to make some right NOW...............................

Except I am going to use Beefeater Gin and no wine. The juniper berry essence and tomatoes sound like a marriage made in cocktail heaven.

These will go great with the Martini's I am planning before dinner.

Thanks!!

good for you: as soon as I posted I went out and did the same. I made about 4 for each of us; later this PM we will see how it works.

I'd be tempted to get out the hypo and injecting the stuff INTO the tomatoes, because I doubt that they are going to "absorb" enough to make a difference. I think I'd also put in some Worcestershire sauce and even some tabasco to zip them up a little.

It sounds pretty dang good, I must say, and I am no tomato fan.

just talked to another daugther in Oregon (I have kids all over the place) she said one of her favorite bars has them and they are really strong, but they have to be soaked for a long time. I soaked our about 2 hours: the tomatoes were great, but no vodka infursion at all.

I guess then you chase your grape tomatoes with the leftover unabsorbed vodka.
