Fresh Tomato Martini

This is the cocktail equivalent of slicing up a beefsteak and showering it with crunchy salt. [Photographs: Autumn Giles]

Not unlike a ripe, in-season tomato, the tomato vodka in this drink doesn't need a lot to dress it up. Since it's one of only three ingredients, use a good dry vermouth (such as Dolin) for this drink.

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. 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.
