Heirloom tomatoes are finally starting to roll into farmers markets throughout the city. With that comes some pretty outstanding cocktail recipes. First, there's the always busy Adam Seger of Nacional 27. Seger's monthly cocktail class was the subject of a cover story in the New York Times style section yesterday. The Paper of Record also published Seger's Heirloom Tomato Mojitonico recipe for Anthony and Rob to try at home.

Another chef who's sharing a heirloom tomato-based cocktail recipe is Rick Gresh. The executive chef at David Burke's Primehouse wowed Green City Market patrons with his demo Saturday, topped by a Bloody Mary made from heirloom tomatoes. Gresh promptly posted the recipe for the Bloody Mary mix on his website.
