Ingredients

  • Half a medium cucumber
  • Half a small red pepper, seeded
  • 6 plum tomatoes, quartered, and seeded

Press the mixture through a strainer, then transfer the mixture to a blender and blend until smooth adding the vodka and then the sherry vinegar, to taste. With the blender running add the oil in a thin thread until the mixture changes color (turning orange.) Chill the mixture before serving.
