• 1.5 oz vodka (Try Glacier Potato Vodka from Idaho)

  • 2-3 'Mexican Sour Gherkin' cucumbers

  • 1-2 stalks 'Red Venture' celery

  • 2-3 sprigs cilantro

  • 2-3 slices small spicy or mild peppers

  • 6 cherry tomatoes or 1-2 slices large tomato

  • Dash of Worcestershire sauce (try Annie's for a vegetarian version)

  • 3-4 oz Q or Fever Tree tonic water


Reserve a celery stalk, cherry tomato, or cucumber for garnish. Combine all ingredients excep the tonic water in a cocktail shaker and gently crush the vegetables and herbs, making sure to release the tomato juice. Shake with ice and strain into a tumbler filled with ice. Top with tonic water and add garnish.
