Tomato Girl Summer, TikTok’s latest trend inspired by carefree living, lives on in cocktail form this summer with a savory tomato cocktail that promises to transport you to the Mediterranean coast. It can be found at The Crescent Bar and The Terrace Bar at The Pridwin (81 Shore Road) on Shelter Island. The cocktail, created by The Terrace Bar Manager Gillian Georges, is called the "Not Your Everyday Caprese."

Here's the recipe:

Muddled ripe summer tomatoes, roughly chopped
Muddled fresh garden basil
2oz London Dry Gin
.5oz lemon
.5oz Demerara syrup
.25oz Sherry vinegar


Add to cocktail shaker; shake vigorously with large ice cube

Add 2 dashes of angostura bitters

Serve in a Collins glass, topped with a splash of soda

Garnish: Muddled basil and fresh cherry tomato, Sherry vinegar

So, hop on a ferry and get a taste of Tomato Girl Summer at the Pridwin while enjoying spectacular views of Crescent Beach. Cheers!
