5 O’Clock Somewhere Friday: Beyond the Bloody Mary

Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival is an annual Atlanta event at JCT. Kitchen that raises money for Georgia Organics and The Giving Kitchen. We are, of course, behind such an endeavor, but what makes it more of a delicious day is the celebration of the tomato.

It’s heirloom tomato heaven, and so if anyone would be creative with tomato cocktails, we figured it would be Beverage Manager Eduardo Guzman of JCT., The Optimist, and Marcel. We were right.

His drink packs a punch and makes enough for a party. Join in the celebration and serve something “Beyond the Bloody Mary.”
