Cherry Tomato Margarita
Matthew Kelly / Supercall

Tomatoes and tequila are best friends in the Bloody Maria, but bartender Laura Kruming of Chicago’s Sable Kitchen & Bar has other plans for the ruby red nightshade. “This is an earthy, funky Margarita riff that gets savory notes from cherry tomatoes and is complemented by the refreshing botanical flavor of Chareau Aloe Liqueur,” Kruming says. Finished with tart lime juice and a pinch of salt, it’s invigorating, delicious and difficult to have just one.
