    I wonder what would the flavor be like with substituting gin for vodka??

    I thought I remember reading somewhere that tomatoes contain certain flavors that are only soluble in alcohol....sounds weird but it is in the back of my mind.....Ryan

    ^^that's the theorey. The alcohol is supposed to pull out more flavor from the tomatoes.

    yup

    whether or not it makes a noticeable difference is up to the taster, imho

    I was always wondering about that. Never was a big fan of it, especially if it still reeked of alcohol, though. That said, the best I ever had came from an Italian store in Providence, RI, in a pint container. Never made it myself, though.
