Chilled Spicy Tomato and Basil Bloody Marys
Ingredients
  • 1 3/4  cups  coarsely chopped heirloom or vine-ripened tomatoes (3 to 4 medium tomatoes)
  • 5  large  fresh basil leaves
  •  Ice cubes
  • 3  ounce (6 tablespoons)  pepper vodka, such as Absolut Peppar brand
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  reduced-sodium Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 - 1/4  teaspoon  bottled hot pepper sauce
  • 1/8  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/8  teaspoon  celery salt
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  •  Small  fresh basil leaves
  •  Cucumber spears (optional)
Directions

1. In a blender or small food processor combine tomatoes and the large basil leaves. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Chill for 30 to 60 minutes. Place a fine-mesh sieve over a bowl and strain the mixture through the sieve, using a spatula to press the liquid through (you should have about 1 cup strained liquid, depending on the tomatoes). Discard the pulp in the sieve.

2. Add a few ice cubes to a cocktail shaker; pour the strained liquid into the shaker. Add vodka, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, salt, celery salt, and black pepper to the shaker. Cover shaker; shake vigorously until mixture is chilled. Strain into two ice-filled glasses. Garnish with small basil leaves and, if desired, cucumber spears.
