Tales from the Test Kitchen...Drinking Girls Caprese Salad Sticks

We are feverishly working on getting all of out recipes for our second cookbook, The Drinking Girls Guide to Perfect Party Planning, tested and typed up!  This one, our delectably delicious Caprese Salad Stick recipe. There are alot of recipes for Caprese Salad and Caprese Salad style sticks, but ours is extra special because we soak our tomatoes in a special blend of balsamic vinegar, onions, garlic, basil AND vodka!!  This recipe is a part of our Itty Bitty "Tini" Weenie Cocktail Party complete with Martini Bar!  So vodka was and obvious choice!!
We start with some grape tomatoes and cut a little "x" in the bottom...this helps with the marinating and easy "skewering..."
Marinate the tomatoes in the fridge overnight...or longer if you like...The longer they sit in the marinade, the more flavor in the tomatoes...
About 30 minutes before assembly, toss in your mini bufala mozzarella balls, so give them a little of that special flavor.  They should not marinate for much longer because the alcohol can dry out the mozzarella balls...This super easy and tasty recipe can also be served as a simple salad or as Caprese Salad Bites on toothpicks...Later this week, stay tuned for our version of Twisted Slaw!  
Cheers, Ashleigh & Tiffani, The Drinking Girls
