Remember on Friday when I was telling you about my first night in New York City and my Filthy Martini at Hundred Acres. Well, it was so good, I had to attempt to recreate it. The actual drink only requires three ingredients. Pretty simple, right?

One of those ingredients is tomato vodka. So, like most fruit flavored vodkas, I assumed the process would be pretty simple. Add vodka to tomatoes, let sit for a few days, then strain. After a little googling, I confirmed that it is THAT simple.

So this morning I whipped up a batch of tomato vodka!

Thankfully, garden tomatoes are plentiful around these parts this time of year. Getting my hands on a few was no problem. You’ll need about a pound of tomatoes per 750ml bottle of vodka.

Give them a rough chop.

Add the tomatoes to a holding vessel. Im using this glass jar which I picked up at Wal-Mart a few years ago.

Pretty. I love garden tomatoes!

Once your tomatoes are chopped and in the jar, add your vodka.

I’m a huge fan of Vox, especially when it comes to martinis, so that’s what I’m using.

Glug, glug, glug.

And that’s it! Secure you’re lid and store in a cool, dark place for about seven days.

Next week, I will strain the vodka through a mesh strainer or cheese cloth and return the tomato vodka back to it’s original bottle.

Let’s hope this works!

Stop back next week for Step Two and the recipe for Filthy Martinis.

Cheers!

    I cannot WAIT to hear how this turns out! I do jalepeno vodka every year from my garden. I also do watermelon Jolly Rancher vodka, and have separated out boxes of Lemonheads and friends candies to make a whole rainbow of vodka!

    What did you think of Magnolia? Did you try the banana pudding? Did you make it to Sardis?

    I have NOT read all of the blogs yet… been kind of busy! Hugs from Oregon!
