While playing cards Saturday night I brought up how much my mother loves V-8 juice. I bring her a couple of six packs of the small cans each week. I was explaining how healthy it is for her especially since I get her the low sodium version. Well as this topic of tomato juice made its rounds from person to person, my father says do you remember clamato juice (a blend of clam and tomato juice). When my father brought it up I remembered him drinking it warm with lemon juice, cracked black pepper and a little grated horseradish. I loved it myself and had forgotten all about it, so my next trip to the store I am stocking up on clamato juice. Clamato is a great mixer for many types of cocktails, especially Bloody Mary’s ......
1 1/2 oz vodka
4 oz Clamato juice
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
Dash of Tabasco sauce
Pepper to taste
Celery stalk for garnish
Rim a highball glass with the juice from the lime wedge and a combination of celery salt and salt.
Add the vodka and the Clamato Juice
Season with pepper,Worcestershire and Tabasco to taste.
