We created original cocktails for Eatocracy's launch. They're really good.
Heirloom Tomato Lemonocracy
Serves a crowd
2 large heirloom tomatoes
Halve two large heirloom tomatoes (we prefer yellow varieties such as Wapsipinicon Peach and Gold Medal) and place in a large pitcher. Muddle with a wooden spoon until thoroughly pulped.
Juice the lemons and measure the liquid before adding to the pitcher. Measure the same amount of simple syrup and stir into the pitcher, tasting as you go.
Once the sweet and sour flavors are balanced, stir in 4 cups of water. Strain into an ice-filled pint glass and serve. A shot (or two!) of rye whiskey makes it reminiscent of a wonderfully tipsy deli sandwich.
