The question isn’t why you would want to combine vegetables with vodka. It’s why you haven’t done it already. These little beauties are ideal on a grown up appetizer plate, perfect in cocktails, and brilliant as gifts.

20 cherry tomatoes (a mixture of red, yellow, and green looks amazing, but if you can only find the red ones, that will work just fine)
A few sprigs of herbs (rosemary or thyme work wonderfully)
1 tsp. dry sherry
½ tsp. each Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, and horseradish
500 ml vodka
Sterilize your jar. Clean the tomatoes, and dry them off, then pierce them a few times each with a toothpick or the end of a knife. Place the tomatoes and the herbs in the jar.
Mix up your spices. Pour this over the tomatoes, then cover with vodka and gently mix. Cover with a lid, and swirl the jar to ensure that you have an even mixture.
Put the jar in the fridge overnight to marinate. In the morning, they’re ready to eat!
These tomatoes have about a 2 week shelf life. If you’ve still got some leftover, you can blend them with the vodka in the jar for a Bloody Mary.
