I used to make these all the time and so have made the decision to share my recipe with you all as my birthday present to all of you. I make these one of two ways depending on how spicy you like it. Make it with either a spicy tomato juice (Like Snap-E Tom or the V8 spicy) or just with plain tomato juice. While celery salt is not a must, I think that it adds to this recipe.
Remember don't drink and drive (these can sneak up on ya)
10 oz Tomato Juice (I use a spicy one to use as a starting point but you can use any)
1 oz Vodka
1 pinch* Smokey Paprika
1 pinch* Chili powder or Cayenne Pepper
1 pinch* Salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/2 tsp grated Horseradish (Not prepared)
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp Celery Salt
1 Celery Stick
2 wedges Lime
Take one lime wedge and run it around the rim of the glass, mix 1/2 tsp celery salt and 1/2 salt and dust the rim of the glass. Fill glass with ice cubes.
Mix all ingredients except the celery and one lime wedge (squeeze the juice of one lime wedge in the mix) in a shaker. Shake all ingredients together and pour over the ice. Add the celery stick and the lime wedge.
Sit and enjoy! Enjoy some mild cheeses and crackers with it.
*A pinch is about 1/8 tsp so you can use your 1/4 teaspoon and just fill it to half if that helps.
Thank you for stopping by and remember, enjoy life.
It's the one you have,
