Mozzarella Tomato Martini is outstanding! This is a savory martini made from tomato water, a clear liquid with a delicate, acidic flavor that is produced when tomatoes are strained of their juices. This martini’s flavor depends completely on the ripe tomatoes. So make this martini only if you have in-season, ripe tomatoes. As the tomatoes release their juice, it gives you an almost gin-clear liquid with lots of flavor. Spike the martinis, if you like, with a splash of pepper vodka or grappa. It does take a little time to make this martini, but it is well worth the effort. The Mozzarella Tomato Martini is absolutely beautiful to look at, as well as refreshing!
