people have come to expect. Thrasher
starts with a tomato consumée, which
he makes using fresh local heirloom
tomatoes, onion, Serrano chilis and
lemon grass that are blended and
strained through a cloth (see recipe
below). He then adds fresh lemon or
lime juice and citrus vodka.
At Clio Restaurant in Boston, chef
Kenneth Oringer gives his tomato
water martini a starring role on the
14-course tasting menu, where it is the
opening dish. That version, made with
strained juice from fresh tomatoes
topped with basil oil, is nonalcoholic,
but for those looking to try the drink on
its own, it’s also available from the bar

Variety Is the Spice of Life
These days, if a brunch spot has just
one Bloody Mary on the cocktail list, it
seems as much a disappointment as if
the menu featured nothing but scrambled eggs. Take the restaurant Prune
in Manhattan’s East Village, where
the Bloody Mary list includes 11 versions. Just walking through the door is
temptation alone, with bottles of spirits
chilling on the bar in buckets made of
ice, studded with ingredients like chilis
and lemons (the cocktail lover’s dream
ice sculpture). Prune’s menu features
the Mariner, made with vodka, clam
juice and olives; the Southwest, a blend
of tequila, smo-ked chipotle peppers
and lime; and the Chicago Matchbox—
a neighborhood favorite—made with
homemade lemon vodka and garnished
with pickled brussel sprouts, turnips,
green beans, radishes and caper berries.
At Alfa Bar in Philadelphia, the
choice is easier to make, thanks to the
restaurant’s Bloody Mary flight, which
includes 3-ounce samples of all five of
Alfa’s unique Bloody Marys, colorful
versions that are as pleasing on the eye
as they are on the palate. Alfa’s Bloody
Mary menu is inspired by regions
around the world. There’s the Thai
Mary (curry spices, lime, cilantro and
rum) and La Maria Verde (tomatillos,
lime, cilantro, pineapple and tequila).
A Cajun version, the Voodoo Mary, is
extra spicy, made with tomato juice,
vodka, hot sauce, barbecue sauce and
an Andouille sausage.
