DECONSTRUCTED BLOODY MARY


One of my all time favorites!
Don't be fooled by how innocent these little babies look; they pack some punch! This is a perfect example of why I need some taste testers to come over to my house every night...I am severely paying the "sole taste tester" price this morning!

DECONSTRUCTED BLOODY MARY
Loosely adapted from Alison Mesrop's Tequila-Bloody Mary Cherry Tomatoes

2 cups cherry tomatoes
1 cup liquid from canned tomato with onion, or use tomato juice
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 cup lemon juice, approx 1 lemon
1/4 cup tequila
1/4 cup vodka, peppered flavor preferable
1/8 cup white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
Cilantro (for serving)
Course salt and course ground pepper (for serving)

Using a toothpick, poke 10 holes in every cherry tomato. Combine all ingredients except the cilantro and course salt and course pepper in a plastic bag, glass bowl or plastic container. Seal/cover and refrigerate, keeping tomatoes submerged in liquid, 1-3 days. (I can never wait longer than 1...they are so good!)

There are so many fun ways to serve:
Take the tomatoes out of the liquid, put in a large serving plate, sprinkle with chopped cilantro, course salt and pepper.

or

Dip, Roll, Eat…Spear each tomato with a pick, set on platter. Put the marinade in a cup or bowl. Have a separate cup or bowl mixed with cilantro, course salt and pepper. Now dip the tomatoes in liquid, roll in the salt & pepper and eat.


or

Great on the accompaniment to any of your Mexican meals, GUACAMOLE or tacos.
