All Hail the Tomato Juice

This morning I remembered the bottles of V-8 vegetable juice on the top shelf of my fridge. So I said to myself, "Why not create a Bloody Mary Moctkail?" I grabbed some condiments, a slice of celery and made myself the perfect non-hangover drink.

Speaking of cure, ironically, that is the name of a place I went to last night. Last summer Cure was my go-to place. Every Thursday, I would go and break out my salsa moves--or lack there of. The place has a "latin room" that I'm obsessed with; every time I go I end up dancing the night away in that room.

Spiced Tomato Mocktail
Total time: 5 minutes.

  • 1 lime
  • Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Maggi sauce (available in specialty food stores or in the Mexican aisle at some supermarkets)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 5-8 drops Tabasco sauce
  • 12 oz. V-8 vegetable juice or Clamato
  • Pepper
  • Celery, for garnish
  1. Slice lime in half and run it around the rim of the glass; then dip into a bowl of salt so that the rim is salted. Squeeze the rest of the lime juice into the glass. Add Maggi, Worcestershire and Tabasco in the glass and stir.
  2. Add juice and stir again, adding a bit of pepper. Add ice and garnish with celery stick.
