Ingredients

4 pounds tomatoes, roughly chopped

1/2 cup fresh mint leaves

2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

1 stalk lemongrass, roughly chopped

2 scallions, 1 roughly chopped and 1 thinly sliced 

1/4 jalapeno pepper, seeded and roughly chopped 

Sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1/2 pint grape tomatoes, halved

Directions

  1. Place the tomatoes, mint, garlic, lemongrass, chopped scallion and jalapeno in a blender and pulse until still chunky but releasing liquid. 
  2. Line a fine sieve with a double layer of cheesecloth over a large container. Pour the tomato mixture into the sieve and let drain for 2 to 3 hours, or refrigerate overnight. 
  3. Season the strained liquid with salt and pepper. Pour into shooter glasses, garnish with the grape tomatoes and sliced scallions.
