Vodka-Infused Cherry Tomatoes

BT Calgary | posted Tuesday, Jul 29th, 2014

Cherry Tomatoes

Ingredients

  • 20 cherry tomatoes (a mixture of red, yellow, and green looks amazing, but if you can only find the red ones, that will work just fine)
  • A few sprigs of herbs (rosemary or thyme work wonderfully)
  • 1 tsp. dry sherry
  • ½ tsp. each Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, and horseradish
  • 500 ml vodka

 

Method

  1. Sterilize your jar. Clean the tomatoes, and dry them off, then pierce them a few times each with a toothpick or the end of a knife. Place the tomatoes and the herbs in the jar.
  2. Mix up your spices. Pour this over the tomatoes, then cover with vodka and gently mix.
  3. Cover with a lid, and swirl the jar to ensure that you have an even mixture.
  4. Put the jar in the fridge overnight to marinate. In the morning, they’re ready to eat!
  5. These tomatoes have about a two-week shelf life.
  6. If you’ve still got some left over, you can blend them with the vodka in the jar for a Bloody Mary.
