Maker’s Mark and Balsamic Roasted Tomatoes


These tomatoes are about as easy as it gets when it comes to a simple side dish that is both elegant and rustic at the same time. The balsamic and Maker’s Mark® Bourbon reduce together in the oven to help glaze and flavor the tomatoes and work well with the acidity and natural sweetness of the tomatoes.

Servings: 4–6
Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Ready In:


  • 3 tablespoons Maker’s Mark® Bourbon
  • 1 pound cherry tomatoes on the vine (if you can’t find on the vine, regular cherry tomatoes will work)
  • 2 tablespoons aged balsamic vinegar or cream of balsamic
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 500°F.
  2. Place the tomatoes in a single layer in a nonstick baking dish, leaving the vines intact.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients.
  4. Pour the dressing over the tomatoes (it will pool in the bottom of the dish).
  5. Roast the tomatoes in the oven for 8–10 minutes until the skins burst and the glaze has reduced, gently shaking the pan once during cooking.
  6. To serve, carefully place the tomatoes on a plate. Spoon the reduced glazed over the tomatoes. Serve immediately.
