Makes two


  • 1 ½ pounds ripe heirloom tomatoes
  • 1 leek, white and light green parts only, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1 teaspoon tamari soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons bottled horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon hot red chili pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 4 ounces vodka
  • Garnish: large stalk celery


  1. Purée tomatoes, leeks, cilantro and tamari in a blender until smooth. If you prefer less "texture" in your drink, you can remove tomato seeds and solids in a sieve or food mill at this point; otherwise, add horseradish, hot pepper, lemon juice and vodka, and stir well. Pour into two glasses, add ice cubes. Garnish with celery, and relish completely.
