Thirsty Thursday: An Heirloom Tomato Cocktail

Beefsteak Collins Cocktail

Beefsteak Collins Cocktail

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.

Normally relegated to the likes of Bloody Marys and Micheladas, tomato juice has been looking to make a bigger splash for some time now. Fortunately for everyone, we’ve got just the thing. Starting with in-season beefsteak tomatoes, this heirloom tomato cocktail gets a sweet infusion from thyme simple syrup before it’s rounded off with gin, lemon juice and grenadine. It tastes like if you put sugar on an heirloom tomato instead of salt, and it was delicious.

Bottoms up, folks.
