Farmers Market Vodka Garden:
Over the centuries, vodka has been distilled from potatoes, grains and fruit – anything the farmer had left over at the end of harvest. And because vodka is a neutral spirit, it can be infused with all the flavors of the farmers market. Try a lighter, fresher version of the classic Bloody Mary by simply smashing fresh tomatoes in the shaker and straining. Or infuse vodka with peppers and herbs to preserve the flavor of the harvest.
Farmers Market Harvest Reserve: Muddle 1.5 ounces vodka with celery, cucumber, cilantro, peppers, tomatoes and a dash of Worcestershire. Shake over ice, strain, and serve over ice topped with tonic water. Garnish with celery.
