Behind the Bar-End of Summer Lemonade

Gosh I LOVE heirloom tomatoes....can't get enough.   I always try to make a million things with them while they're at the farmers markets. Needless to say, I'm gettin' a little panicked that tomato season is drawing to a close. So before they are gone forever, let's celebrate these babies with a BANG and make the "End of Summer Lemonade"!! Trust me people, tomatoes in lemonade equals good times (the whiskey doesn't hurt either).

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup water

2 pounds tomatoes, use yellow or orange cored and chopped

1/2 cup fresh lemon juice

3 cups ice water

1 shot of whiskey (per drink...or more! No judging here.)

lemon for garnish 

1. In a small sauce pan combine sugar and water, bring to a simmer over medium heat (basically you are making simple syrup). Let cool

2. In a food processor puree tomatoes then strain through sieve and discard solids. Add the simple syrup , lemon juice and ice water. Stir

3. Fill up a tall glass with ice and pour liquid. Add the shot of whiskey. Stir. Garnish that bad boy up with a lemon or tomato wedge!
