Decent replica, but better if you add some onion powder as the original Mott's version does. Biker_Chef's Hot TIp - Do not use bottled clam juice, that makes it as expensive as the real thing. Use Minor's Clam Base concentrate instead. Buy this from Amazon for you are unlikely to find it outside of a restaurant supply store. For a little extra zip, add the juice pressed from a couple of cloves of fresh garlic. VARIATION - For a Mexican twist, add the juice of one fresh lime and 1/2 to 1 Tsp. finely powdered Coriander. Then garnish the serving glass with a slice of lime and a few chopped Cilantro leaves.

I ordered the Minors clam base concentrate as suggested by biker_chef. It came today and I made the recipe, added onion powder and it is very good. I'm sure it will be even better after it is chilled. I used one tablespoon of the clam base, in case anyone else decides to order the Minors clam base (from Amazon). This is much cheaper than buying Clamato juice and it has no high fructose corn syrup or msg. Make sure the tomato juice you buy doesn't have either of those ingredients, if you are health conscious.

Haven't tried it yet but for me it doesn't matter if it costs as much as Mots. After drinking it (Motts Clamato) for 20 plus years I finally looked at the ingredients and I wasn't very happy. Worst ingredient...mono-sodium glutamate. No wonder I'm so addicted. Looking forward to trying this recipe plus all of your (reviewer's) suggestions.
