Tomato Elderflower Cocktail

by Jul 28, 2019Recipes, Special Day Recipe

Here’s a fresh use for peak-of-summer tomatoes. Soft, juicy tomatoes work best here, as they’re likely to expel more water. Tomatoes’ lycopene content catapults them to the next nutritional level. Studies show lycopene has anti-inflammatory properties—which is why this beloved fruit may help decrease your risk of heart disease and cancer. St-Germaine adds warm floral notes while fresh lemon rounds out a light, citrusy flavor profile. And with its easy-drinking nature, you could be sipping on this refreshing cocktail late into summer.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh tomatoes
  • ½ cup filtered water
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 3 oz. simple syrup
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • 9 oz. vodka
  • 1.5 oz. St-Germaine (elderflower liqueur)

Instructions

Put tomatoes and a ½ cup of water in a blender and blend on high until smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes.

Pour through a fine sieve into a pitcher; discard the solids

Mix in lemon juice, simple syrup, and salt

Add the 1/3 cup tomato mixture, 3 oz. of vodka and .5 oz. of St-Germaine to the cocktail shaker.  Fill with ice: cover and shake well. 

Strain evenly into 2 glasses.

Repeat twice with remaining ingredients

Garnish with tomatoes and fresh basil.
