Place tomatoes in boiling salted water for 20 seconds, remove to an ice bath then peel the skins. Cut them in half horizontally. Use your fingers to squeeze gently and dig out seeds in the tomato cavities; coarsely chop them.

Place the first 3 ingredients in a small saucepan. Simmer 15 minutes. Transfer to a blender or food processor. Add tomato juice, thyme, salt and Tabasco; process until smooth. Pour into a container with a pouring spout, cover and chill.

When ready to serve, pour into stemmed cordial glasses, serve chilled with a small wedge of lime.
