When I first learned of using tomatoes in sweet cocktails, I thought it sounded disgusting. I tried it anyway and was pleasantly surprised. Turns out, tomatoes are very versatile fruits that can add a delightfully beguiling dimension to classic cocktails.

Muddle 3 tomatoes in tequila, add other ingredients and shake.Rim glass with ground fennel and salt. (I put a bit of honey on first to make it stick.) Garnish with tomato and a bit of green.
