Savory Cocktails

This drink feels like summer. Make it with the very best summer tomatoes or don’t make it at all. Backyard beauties are best, but farmers’ markets and even some grocery stores carry excellent heirloom tomatoes these days. Choose carefully; you’ll want a bright tomato taste to stand up to the fearless herbaceousness in this cocktail, which drinks like a meal.

These rims are anything but sugarcoated. Savory Cocktails shakes, stirs and strains nearly 100 hard-hitting distilled delights for a cornucopia of today’s coolest drinks. Using everything from classic liqueurs to innovative new bitters, the recipes in this book offer a stylish, sophisticated approach to complex-flavored cocktails like:
•Yuzu Sour
•Green Tea Gimlet
•Off-White Negroni
•Pink Peppercorn Hot Gin Sling
•Greens Fee Fizz
•The Spice Trail

Packed with carefully crafted cocktails as well as information on tools, ingredients and imbibing history, Savory Cocktails goes way beyond just recipes. The devilish twists in this barman’s companion are taste tested and mixologist approved.

  • Step 1

    Choose a traditional pint or similar sturdy, thick-bottomed 16-ounce glass. If any of the herbs (such as thyme) have woody stems, remove and discard them. Place the herbs, tomato, and cucumber in the glass and use a long-handled bar muddler to crush them into a fragrant, pulpy mush. Fill the glass with medium ice cubes, stir, add the gin, and stir again. Top with tonic water. Garnish with the herb sprigs (if using).
