Difficulty: Beginner Preparation Time: 15min
Yields: 2 Servings Total Time: 2min
8 grape or cherry tomatoes
1 Tbs fresh lime juice
7 oz vodka
2 oz simple syrup
Stainless steel drink shaker with strainer
For the simple syrup
Simple syrup is just that, simple to make. It is an essential in any well stocked bar. Take 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water. Add the sugar and water in a medium saucepan over high heat. Stir occasionally and keep your eye on the heat until the sugar completely dissolves. Cool before using it in your drink. (Simple syrup may be stored for up to one week in a covered container in the fridge)
For the drink
In the bottom of your shaker, muddle the tomatoes until tomatoes are completely mushed. Add your ice to the top and fill shaker with the remaining ingredients.
Shake for 20-30 seconds. Pour and strain into two tumblers that have been filled with ice. Enjoy!
