Tomatoes in a margarita? Don't doubt a good thing. The juice of muddled cherry tomatoes adds savory flavor to classic margaritas, while the skewered vegetable also makes a showstopping garnish. It makes the best meal drink. 


Coarse or flaked sea salt
3 - sweet yellow cherry tomatoes
Pinch coarse or flaked sea salt
3 - tablespoons silver tequila (1 1/2 oz.)
1 - tablespoon orange liqueur (1/2 ounce)
1 - tablespoon fresh lime juice (1/2 oz.)
1 - tablespoon simple syrup (1/2 oz.)
Cherry tomatoes for garnish

Rim a glass with coarse salt; set aside. In a cocktail shaker combine cherry tomatoes and a pinch of salt; muddle tomatoes until broken up and juiced. Add tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, simple syrup, and ice; shake until chilled, about 30 seconds. Double strain into an ice-filled glass. Garnish with a few cherry tomatoes on a bamboo skewer, if desired.
