Ingredients
  • Balsamic Vinegar and Agave Nectar Glaze:
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup agave
  • Tomato Slice:
  • 2 ounces fresh Roma tomato water (not canned juice), see Cook's Note
  • 1 1/2 ounces Basil-Infused Vodka, recipe follows

  • Basil-Infused Vodka:
  • One 750-milliliter bottle vodka
  • 1 bunch fresh basil leaves
Directions
Tomato Slice:
  • For the balsamic vinegar and agave nectar glaze: Put the balsamic vinegar and agave in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and cook until the mixture comes together and thickens. Set aside to cool slightly. Rim a cocktail glass with the glaze.

  • For the tomato slice: Add the fresh tomato water and Basil-Infused Vodka to a cocktail shaker, add large ice cubes, shake vigorously and double-strain into the prepared glass. Add the foam on top, garnish with the basil leaf and serve.

Basil-Infused Vodka:
  • Combine the vodka and basil leaves and let steep for at least 2 days. Strain out the basil before serving. Yield: 750 milliliters.

To make tomato water, line a mesh strainer with cheesecloth and place over a bowl. Puree 1 to 2 Roma tomatoes in a blender. Pour the liquid through the lined strainer and discard the solids.
