In our quest to highlight in-season ingredients, we believe we may have encountered the ideal recipe in Todd Thrasher’s Tomato Water, which he created for the Alexandria, Virginia-based Restaurant Eve. Endlessly refreshing and wonderfully versatile, this simple yet sophisticated concoction tastes like summer in a glass (and feels like it, too, thanks to the perfect amount of heat achieved via a Serrano chile).

Like Thrasher’s acclaimed cocktail mixes, the tomato water is available for purchase at the Society Fair market located just down the street from Restaurant Eve, but those not lucky enough to live in the Alexandria area can make it at home with the following recipe. The team at Society Fair uses it to dress their Caprese salad—a technique we tried last night for a dinner party that yielded excellent results. (We also drizzled it over Panzanella, which was a hit. Trust us, this is going to become your must-have magic potion for summer.)
