Tomate

It has been the rainiest May that I can remember. Good for the flowers and trees, but bad for my need to kick back on the patio with a summer cocktail. The cocktail I'm yearning for these days is a beautiful French drink combining pastis, grenadine, and water - a Tomate.


Pastis (which we photographed, discussed, and fawned over here) is an anise-flavored liqueur popular in southern France. When we discovered that there was a pastis cocktail involving grenadine, we couldn't wait to use our delicious homemade grenadine in a new (to us) drink! The Tomate (French for "tomato") is a sweet drink, and the taste of anise is very strong. (Licorice-haters to the left.) The splash of grenadine gives the cocktail a fabulous blush of pink. Mmmm... is summer here yet?



Tomate


  • 1 part pastis
  • 4 parts cold water
  • splash of grenadine
Pour pastis into a glass, followed by a splash of grenadine. Fill the glass with 4 parts cold water and a couple ice cubes, if desired. À la vôtre!

  1. I've never encountered pastis or any drink involving anise before. It does have that festive summer hue and I can't wait to try this out in the next summer party.

  2. The first time I heard about pastis was while watching Barefoot Contessa. She used it in a baked fish dish. I didn't want to buy a bottle for one recipe so when I made the recipe a used crushed fennel seeds. You are giving me an excuse to try it! :)
