READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by pamela t.

This yummy Italian style Mary is sure to engage your guests in great conversations. Take a pitcher of this festive drink to a holiday party and you’re sure to be the star! You can cut the zucchini with mini-cookie cutters into star shapes and triangles for a festive Stallion. Add to a pretty toothpick and a couple of olives, and you have a party in a glass. If you want a spicier Stallion, use spicy V-8 Juice. This recipe is for six servings; for single serving, use the second set of instructions.

Very tasty. Rather than rubbing a lemon along the rim of the glass, I just put a squirt of fresh lemon juice in the glass. We didn't bother rimming the glass with salt and I'm really glad we didn't! Even without added salt, the drink is very salty, but it really is very very good. We will make this again.
