Goodness, y'all deleted my review! *scratching my head & wondering why...while lengthy at times, I would never say anything offensive* Anyway, as I said ;o) these are fabulous! I like to put a sprig of herbs in mine (both rosemary & thyme are really good), I poke them w/ a sharp object (maybe they objected to my wording for "poke w/ a sharp object" LOL) a corncob skewer works good & that allows the tomatoes to absorb more of the vodka. I do drain mine though & save the vodka to use in bloody mary drinks. Don't soak these for longer than overnight or they get too strong & soggy. I pour a bed of kosher salt on a platter & use it as a bed for the tomatoes. This looks great & keeps them from rolling about. Be sure & label them if you take them to a mix w/ children. I once took them to a family function & my daughter told me how much my grandson liked them. Ooops!

If you want a great alternative to a boring veggie platter, make this dish. I tripled the recipe to take to a large party. It was fabulous. I used grape tomatoes instead of cherry and everyone wants the recipe. I lined a chip and dip tray with slices of lime and poured in the tomatoes. The stuck celery stalks in a various spots. After pouring the dipping sauce into the center holder it was ready. Definitely a hit, even with people that don't normally like tomatoes.

These are always a hit! I prick them and soak them only a couple of hours. I add celery salt, old bay, horseradish, and pepper and garnish with celery stalks.

What's not to love! These are super easy to make and a hit every time I serve them. I don't use pepper vodka and find they are zippy enough with the Tabasco. Great for parties as a standout next to the garden variety veggie platters.

I've made this for two parties and most people at both liked it. It is a great contribution because it is fast, easy, and unique. It does have a strong flavor, so you could choose to replace some pepper vodka with regular vodka and add less hot sauce. I second what another reviewer said about piercing the tomatoes before marinading them so they can really absorb the flavor.

Very Good!! I love Bloody Mary's and these were great for a cocktail party. I put little pieces of celery around the plate a garnish. Everyone gobbled them up!!

I was looking forward to these so much and was terribly dissapointed. I followed the recipe exactly and they just taste terrible. I love Bloody Mary. Love tomatoes, celery salt, everyting. But it just didn't work. Great concept though.
