Roasting heirloom tomatoes for this savory Bloody Mary cocktail taken up a notch, brings out their natural sweet flavor and adds a bit of smoky taste as well.


  • 1 pound heirloom tomatoes, cut into roughly 1-inch square pieces
  • 1 small-medium sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño chili, stemmed and quartered
  • 4 ounces vodka, divided
  • 2 ounces tomato water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro

  • fresh heirloom cherry tomato to garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put the tomatoes, onions, and chili in a single layer in a baking pan and place in the oven for 20 minutes to roast. Stir in the 2 ounces vodka, tomato water and horseradish, and then roast the mixture for an additional 15 minutes.
  3. Place the roasted vegetables into a blender with the cilantro, a few pinches of salt and pepper, and some lime juice to taste; process until smooth.
  4. Put 2 ounces of vodka into a cocktail shaker filled with ice along with a splash of lime juice, the Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, hot sauce and the tomato mixture.
  5. Shake the mixture vigorously for 40 seconds and then strain into a tall, salt-rimmed cocktail glass filled halfway with ice; serve immediately garnished with a tomato.
