To peel tomatoes, using a paring knife, make an X on the bottom of the tomatoes. Drop the tomatoes into a pot of boiling water for about 30 seconds. Remove and transfer to an ice bath until they are cool to touch. Remove, pat dry and peel.
Combine and Chill
Place the liquid ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Add seasonings and stir to combine. Prep produce and add to Bloody Mary mixture. Toss gently to combine. Cover and chill for 2 hours or overnight.
Serve chilled, garnish with basil. Additional serving suggestion: serve with pan seared cod topped with an olive tapenade, sided with grilled garlic bread.
