This was a real hit at a Christmas Party I went to last year. Not only was the idea original and the presentation artistic, but everyone loved it! They are served in a large way- oversized novelty martini glass. They are absolutely delicious and reminded me of a bite of Bloody Mary

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut a shallow cross shape in the top of each tomato, put them in a large bowl and add the garlic (as much or as little as you like), a little salt, Tabasco (optional) and above all vodka.
  2. Allow the tomatoes to soak up the vodka, stirring occasionally; Let them soak overnight and after 24 hours they can be put in the refrigerator.
  3. Once you are at the party pour into the large oversized martini glass and serve with a shot glass of Lemon Pepper for dipping and a shot glass with toothpicks.

Great to serve as a cold appetizer! Such a fun presentation in a large martini glass with the shot of lemon pepper next to it!

Not sure what I done wrong. Made this for a Christmas party, and thought they would be nice. Followed the recipe to the letter, and everyone said they were way to strong. I will make again with less to see if they are any better.

it actually gets 5 stars for the original presentation, but only 4 stars for the flavor. very original, half my guests loved it and half didn't. i guess you have to be a vodka lover. thanks for the original idea.
