This savoury infused vodka is perfect for those day-after brunches when everyone is nursing a sore head. Or pop little bottles of it in a hangover kit for your bridesmaids!

Serve it straight-up over ice and you have yourselves a low-cal bloody-tini. But it’s also yummy with a splash of soda or add it to tomato juice for an easy Bloody Mary.


What you need: 

– 750ml clean bottle or jar with a lid

– 100g cherry tomatoes, halved

– 1 stalk celery, cut into 5cm lengths

– 1 teaspoon black peppercorns, crushed lightly

– 500ml vodka



Place the tomatoes, celery and pepper in the bottle/jar. Pour over the vodka. Seal and place in the refrigerator for 1 week, shaking occasionally.

Strain the vodka into a jug and pour into a clean, dry bottle/jar. It is shelf stable once the fresh ingredients have been removed.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups.

It can easily be doubled or tripled as required. Enjoy!

Ms Chinoiserie Says: What an easy – and tasty – ‘pick-me-up’. And I love that it has a long shelf life too!
