Well, who knew Delia Smith had it in her! According to her recipe, she’s a fan of a tipple or two. These tomatoes may look innocent, but they’ve actually been soaked in lashings of booze for 48 hours, absorbing a concoction of vodka and sherry. Essentially it’s a bloody mary, just without the mixer… serve with a drink and you’ll be away… literally:
- 250g plum/cherry tomatoes, stalks removed
- 200ml Vodka
- 1 tablespoon Sherry
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- A few drops of Tobasco
- Score a little cross on the base of each tomato, then place them in the plastic box cross-side up. Whisk together the vodka, sherry, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco.
Put the lid on the box and leave it in the fridge to allow the tomatoes to marinate for two days.
- Before serving, drain the tomatoes and let them come back to room temperature
