Yummy: Beyond The Bloody Mary

I saw this in the New York Times. All I have to say is - Who's in?

Recipe: Heirloom Tomato Mojitonico Adapted from Nacional 27

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, for rim 1/2 lime, cut into sections

1/2 cup heirloom tomatoes, roughly chopped

1/4 cup fresh herbs (like basil, tarragon, thyme, chives or mint) loosely packed and not chopped

1 1/2 ounces gin

2 ounces tonic water, or to taste.

Rim a 16-ounce glass by moistening the edge with a lime wedge, then dipping the glass into a small plate filled with equal parts salt and pepper. Into the same glass add the tomatoes, herbs and lime sections, then muddle, gently, until the mixture is equal parts juice and solids. Add ice, stir, then add the gin, and stir again. Top with the tonic water.

Yield: 1 drink.

There are some other great ideas in the following article.... I want one right now!

We've got the ingredients (with tomatoes and fresh herbs from the garden) so we're about to give it a try. Sounds good!
