Celebrate summer in a refreshing new way with this tasty tomato and vodka cocktail.
fresh basil leaves
small fresh mozzarella cheese ball
cup vodka (2 oz)
cup tomato juice
Wrap 1 of the basil leaves around mozzarella ball. Thread mozzarella and cherry tomato on cocktail pick or skewer; set aside for garnish.
Add vodka and remaining 3 basil leaves to cocktail shaker; use muddler or wooden spoon to muddle basil, releasing its flavor into vodka.
Add tomato juice, salt and enough ice to fill shaker; shake until well chilled. Pour into ice-filled glass (discard basil from shaker). Add garnish.
Instead of the mozzarella and tomato garnish, simply garnish the cocktail with a basil leaf on the side of the glass.
To make this for a crowd, multiply the ingredients per number of guests and use a pitcher instead of a cocktail shaker for mixing. Refrigerate until guests arrive, and pour the cocktails into ice-filled glasses just before serving.
