Tomato Lemonade

  • TOTAL TIME: 25 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 10 Drinks
  • MAKE-AHEAD
  • STAFF-FAVORITE

Kat Kinsman, managing editor of CNN's Eatocracy food blog, is known for clever drinks like this lemonade. It's perfect on its own as a mocktail, but Kinsman recommends adding a shot or two of rye whisky to make the tomatoey drink "reminiscent of a wonderfully tipsy deli sandwich." Gin or vodka would be a great addition as well.

  1. 1/4 cup sugar
  2. 1/4 cup water
  3. 2 pounds tomatoes, preferably yellow or orange, cored and chopped
  4. 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  5. 3 cups ice water
  6. Lemon wedges and herb sprigs, for garnish
  1. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water and bring to a simmer over moderate heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Let the simple syrup cool to room temperature.
  2. In a food processor, puree the tomatoes and strain the puree through a sieve into a pitcher; discard the solids. Add the simple syrup, lemon juice and ice water and stir.
  3. Fill 10 tall glasses with ice. Pour in the tomato lemonade, garnish with lemon wedges and herb sprigs and serve.
