We created original cocktails for Eatocracy's launch. They're really good.

Heirloom Tomato Lemonocracy

Serves a crowd

2 large heirloom tomatoes
12 large lemons
Simple syrup
Rye whiskey (optional)

Halve two large heirloom tomatoes (we prefer yellow varieties such as Wapsipinicon Peach and Gold Medal) and place in a large pitcher. Muddle with a wooden spoon until thoroughly pulped.

Juice the lemons and measure the liquid before adding to the pitcher. Measure the same amount of simple syrup and stir into the pitcher, tasting as you go.

Once the sweet and sour flavors are balanced, stir in 4 cups of water. Strain into an ice-filled pint glass and serve. A shot (or two!) of rye whiskey makes it reminiscent of a wonderfully tipsy deli sandwich.

    Tomatoes are one of the most common vegetables all over the world. They are quickly growing plants and are favorite among most amateur gardeners so as me.
    I will start to grow tomatoes in my farm and now learning watever i can about them, thanks for information. I also
    found another good site about tomatoes and so many other methods of agriculturing, i recommend you to take a look.
