"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

1 pint cherry tomatoes (whole) coarse salt chilled vodka
Chill vodka in freezer. Blanch tomatoes (boil a small pan of water and dip tomatoes for 1 minute in boiling water). Then plunge them in a bowl of water with ice cubes. Peel skins. Place tomatoes in a shallow dish and chill. At serving time - pour vodka over tomatoes. Put a small dish of coarse salt on the side with toothpicks. Spear tomatoes and dip in salt. These make an excellent party hors d'oeuvres. Tastes like a fresh bloody Mary.
