I liked this soup but my husband really didn't like it. I used Clamato and as a result the soup had a bit of a vinegary taste. I might play around with this recipe since I really like the idea of it.

Bev this soup is absolutely wonderful! I increased the shrimp and the fresh garlic, and increased the red pepper flakes to about 1 tablespoon, we like it super spicy lol! also I uses Mott's spicy clamato juice, and added in some Cajun seasoning, this is my DH's new favorite soup, I have to say it is just as good cold as a summer soup!...great recipe hon! thanks for sharing, Kitten:)
