Well that was nasty - until I added some lemon juice, worchester and salt. Now it's very pleasant. I made a pitcher and now must have a nap.

The key is to use good quality tomatoes such as heirloom. Then you get the full sweet flavor of the tomato without having to doctor it up too much :) It's definitely meant to be a mellow drink that captures the essence of the tomato.

I love anything I can put a tomato in , raw, canned, juiced, whatever. This seemed like the perfect way to introduce myself and my husband to martini's They have never been a favorite of this household, but a tomato martini? Now that is something we might try.
