Tomatoes With A Kick

 This is a great start to a special night, such as a Birthday, Graduation, Christmas or New Years.  It is very easy and really different!

  • 1 basket of grape tomatoes
  • 1 bottle of citrus vodka (several brands on the market)
  • Sea salt
  • Fancy toothpicks
  • Oversized martini glass

Wash the tomatoes and prick with a metal skewer a couple of times. Place them in a sealable bag and pour only enough vodka over them to completely cover. Marinate overnight in the fridge.

Just before your guests arrive, place the tomatoes in the oversized martini glass (or pretty glasses).

Put  fancy toothpicks in a side dish and also have a separate dish with the sea salt in it. Great conversation piece and far too simple to tell anyone how you did it.

People should just pick up a fancy pick, put it in a tomato and dip in the salt.  The tomatoes are small so there isn’t the chance to ‘double dip’.  You are so clever…

The minute your guests see this you will hear loud WOWs. Set the glass on a mirror and add a couple of tea lights in holders around the base. Very dramatic!

I saw this in a magazine in a Dr.’s office and wrote it down. It is so pretty…your guests will talk about this for months.
