Fresh Tomato Water Martini


2 - 2 1/2 jiggers of fresh tomato water
1- 1 1/2 jiggers of vodka or gin


In a blender, puree 2 tomatoes.
Strain the pulp through a fine flour sack cloth or cheesecloth into a bowl, tightening the towel to get as much juice as possible.
Fill a martini shaker 3/4 of the way with ice.
Add the vodka or gin and the fresh tomato water, and shake well.
Strain over a martini glass and serve immediately.

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.


We created this Tomato Water Martini recipe by using the strained juice - or what we call the "water" - of plump tomatoes, which gives you the wonderful essence of the fruit. The "water" is different than using the whole pureed tomato juice. The result is wonderfully light yet still packs a punch of tomato goodness! Use gin or vodka and garnish with a slice of tomato and some basil leaves.
