flyingtomato400I am really enjoying the winter Olympics. Not only has Shaun White been an awe-inspiring athlete, but a world-class entertainer. I have never paid much attention to the half pipe or snowboarding for that matter, but I have been simply riveted. Shaun White proved to the world that there is snowboarding, and then there’s Shaun White snowboarding.

He won his second men’s Olympic half pipe gold medal Wednesday with never-before-seen tricks and maneuvers, defining the sport for all generations. “I knew that I had it in me,” he said after that run. “It felt good.”

His passion and humor and his dedication to his craft is just awesome. So mix up some Flying Tomatoes for your Olympic viewing party.

The Flying Tomato

1 1/4 cups fresh tomato juice (from about 2 pounds tomatoes)

3/4 cup fresh celery juice (from about 3 large celery stalks)

ΒΌ cup fresh lime Juice

2 teaspoons grated fresh horseradish

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 teaspoon. Salt, plus more, to taste

3 dashes Tabasco sauce, plus more, to taste

Ice cubes as needed

4 ounces vodka or gin

2 celery stalks

2 lime wedges

In a pitcher, stir together the tomato juice, celery juice, lime juice, horseradish, pepper, salt and Tabasco. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 30 minutes. Fill 2 tall glasses with ice cubes and add 2 ounces vodka or gin to each one. Stir the tomato juice mixture and pour into glasses, dividing evenly. Garnish each with a celery stalk and lime wedges serve immediately. Serves 2. Simply omit the alcohol if you prefer.
