The Tomojito is simply a tomato Mojito and it is delicious. If you enjoy fresh tomato in your cocktails you'll really enjoy this one because while the majority of its ingredients are tomato-based, it is light, significantly lighter than a Bloody Mary and the like.

The cherry tomatoes are muddled to release just the right amount of their delicate juices and it's paired with Three Olives' tomato vodka. Add a little basil-infused simple syrup (which is very easy to make) and a bit of lime for the sour aspect and you have a great drink different from any other.

Update: Three Olives' Tomato Vodka is no longer available, though there is a DIY tomato infusion recipe below so you can continue to enjoy this cocktail.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces vodka (tomato*)
  • 2 wedges lime
  • 1 tomato (cherry)
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup (basil-infused)

*Tomato Vodka Infusion:

  • 1 pound of ripe tomatoes, cut to fit in an infusion jar

  • 1-750 mL bottle vodka

  • Sprigs of fresh basil, oregano, or other herbs that are commonly paired with tomato in something like a marinara sauce

  1. Place the cut tomatoes and full sprigs of herbs into a large glass jar and fill with vodka with a tight-fitting lid.

  2. Shake well.

  3. Store in a cool, dark place for 5 to 7 days, shaking daily.

  4. After 5 days, test the infusion for flavor and allow it to infuse longer if needed.

  1. Once the infusion is to your liking, double strain the vodka to remove all of the tomatoes.

  2. Bottle in the original vodka bottle or a similar glass jar with a tight lid.
