I was super skeptical looking at this recipe before I tried it but it was one of the most surprising cocktails that I’ve ever had. This drink brings out sweet dimensions of cherry tomatoes that you never think to notice in typical tomato-based foods.
? Cherry Tomato Zinger ?
?4 cherry tomatoes, halved
?Pinch coarse salt
?2oz dry gin
?1/2 oz elderflower liqueur
?1/2 oz lemon juice
Muddle cherry tomatoes into a pulp and then add other ingredients. Shake and serve with another cherry tomato garnish and add a green herb for extra color and a whiff of one more flavor.
