By Sally James There’s nothing quite like a shot of fresh chilled tomato based “soup” when they are at the height of the season. Experiment with different herbs or add a splash of vodka or wine for an adults-only shooter! I’ve also topped it with a dollop of herbed Mascarpone to give a rich and decadent touch.


  • 4 tomatoes diced (try heirloom or other full flavored seasonal tomatoes)
    1 Persian cucumber (or 1/2 English cucumber) diced
    2 tablespoons tomato paste
    1/2 cup tomato juice
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
    1/4 cup parsley roughly chopped
    salt to taste
    freshly ground pepper to taste
    2 tablespoons olive oil extra virgin
    1-2 tablespoons vodka optional
    1/3 cup mascarpone (or Crème Fraiche)
    1 tablespoon yogurt plain
    2 tablespoons chives snipped
    2 tablespoons basil or mint chopped


  1. Place all the ingredients except the vodka in a blender and puree until desired consistency. Chill for an hour or overnight. For a smoother soup, strain mixture through a sieve.
  2. Just before serving, add the vodka and stir well. Taste and adjust seasoning or add more vodka, lemon or salt and pepper as desired. Serve in shooter glasses topped with a dollop of the mascarpone.
