Tomato Margarita with Fennel Salt

[Photographs: Autumn Giles]

Ripe tomatoes are delicious with slightly herbal tequila and a fennel salt rim. The homemade fennel salt comes together very quickly and let's just say I had to put it away at the back of my cupboard because I found myself "sampling" it quite frequently when it was out on the counter as I was working on these drinks.

Note: For straining the tomato and alcohol puree use a very fine mesh strainer or a less fine one lined with a double layer of cheesecloth. Regardless, the resulting infusion will have a some very fine tomato particles in it that will settle a bit. Just shake it up before using to redistribute them.
