heirloom tomato juice

  • To make the juice, blend the lightest (in color) tomatoes until pureed and blended. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer into a large measuring cup or glass. I started with the green, went to the yellow and went to red. I seasoned each of the juices a bit with salt and pepper, but didn't do much more since the bloody mary has so much flavor!

for a single serving:

  • Stir together the salt, paprika, chile powder and pepper on a plate. Rim the glass with a lime wedge and dip the rim in the salt mixture. Fill the glass with ice.
  • In a cocktail shaker or blender, add the tomato juice, lime juice, pickle juice, Worcestershire, celery salt, garlic powder, pepper and hot sauce. Shake or blend until combined. Pour over the ice and stir in the tequila. Garnish with a pickle or cucumber, a pepperoncini and cherry tomatoes.
