Bloody Marys can be filling, but chef Gavin Kaysen makes an especially light and refreshing version by using fresh tomato water. Slideshow: Bloody Mary Recipes
In a colander set over a bowl, sprinkle the tomatoes with the salt. Let stand for 1 hour. Press the tomatoes lightly; you should have about 1 cup of tomato water. Reserve the tomatoes for a salad.
In a cocktail shaker, combine cup of the tomato water with the tomato juice, vodka, lemon juice, dill pickle juice, horseradish, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco. Stir and pour into 2 ice-filled glasses. Garnish with herb sprigs and serve.
