Afternoon Pick Me Up

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by MsSally

This drink will knock off the edge if you get the 3 o'clock munchies. Plus you can get in an extra serving of veggies. You may add alcohol to this, but if your at work, it probably isn't a good idea.

Top Review by Boomette

This is so good. I've made it yesterday and today. I'm going to do this often and will bring to work also. It's great. Even if I used a V8 that was plenty of sodium. Next time, I'll buy with less sodium, cause the balsamic and tabasco add a lot of taste (I didn't use garlic powder) Thanks MsSally. Made for Holiday tag.
