|Oops forgot the basil and some Maldon salt|
We've made it twice now, first time for the last lunch party (sadly we drank to much of it to remember to photograph!) and again today to give you a pretty picture, both times were pleasantly different. Take all of the ingredients on the above board - 2 kgs tomatoes, 2 slugs of vodka, 2 chillis, 3 cloves of garlic, a little slug of balsamic and a mans thumb of horseradish - and don't forget a handful of basil, a pinch of salt. Whizz it all up in the blender and strain through a muslin cloth/table napkin into a jug in your fridge, your juice will be strangely clear, Jamie suggested adding a slice of beetroot to colour it, which it does beautifully, but just for a bit, so as not to flavour. Next time, I'm adding some celery to the whizz as well- so close....do you think Bizerca will part with their recipe?
|Taste and add more chilli if needed and of course extra vodka!|
Salute! This ones for my gorgeous daughter Carrie on the other side of the world- a bloody mary drinker of note! x
