We created original cocktails for Eatocracy's launch. They're really good.

Eatocracy's Smoky Maria

Serves one or more

Tomato halves
Lemon halves
Orange juice (fresh or bottled)
Tequila
Celery salt
Black pepper
Tabasco
Water
Celery stalk

Place a foil pan of halved tomatoes and lemons, alternating cut sides up and down, on the top rack of a medium-hot smoker or a grill containing a foil pouch of soaked mesquite or hickory chips. Close the lid and check after 30 minutes to make sure the juice hasn't evaporated. Once the lemon rinds are softened and brown, remove from heat.

In a pitcher, mash equal parts lemon and tomato together and top with orange juice.

Bloody marys (and their relatives) are highly personalized, so feel free to play with the ratio of tequila, celery salt, black pepper, tabasco and water, tasting as you go. Strain and pour into an ice-filled pint glass and garnish with a celery stalk.

    I just can't imagine spending 30 minutes to make a cocktail when I could make a Bloody Mary in 1.
