Oh oh... I've found a use for my plethora of garden tomatoes.....

Makes 1 drink
  • 4 cherry tomatoes
  • 3-4 fresh basil leaves, torn
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • ice
  • 1 1/2 ounce gin
  • basil sprig, for garnish
  1. Muddle the whole cherry tomatoes, basil leaves, lemon juice from the lemon wedge, and pinch of sea salt in a shaker. (If you don't have a muddler, the handle of a wooden spoon works just fine.) Muddle until you get a good amount of juice from the tomatoes.
  2. Add ice, and shake well. Strain through a fine sieve into a lowball cocktail glass.
  3. Add gin, a little ice, and stir. Garnish with basil sprig, and enjoy!
