I served this for a party (my Dad is diabetic). I am trying to stay away from drinks & punches that contain ginger ale or even alot of juices with alot of sugar. We all loved this. I started off with V8 and followed the directions. I used 1 packet of stevia. Made it more special than just V8 or tomato juice. Very yummy, NoraMarie.
FABULOUS Nora! I drink tomato juice a lot, and this was a really wonderful recipe! I had this before my main meal tonight - excellent spicy flavours. I did not add the sweetener, but I did add everything else - and also served it with a celery stirring stick! I LOVE tabasco, and added QUITE a few drops! Made for Family Picks and ZWT4 - merci ma leetle photo queen! FT:-)
Made for ZWT 4 Zingo. This made a great mid-morning snack. Left out the sweetner and as other reviewers, found that a 'tad' bit of tobasco made it perfect . . . only thing missing was the vodka! Thanks for sharing.
A nice basic upgrade to regular tomato juice. Very easy with ingredients on hand in most pantries. Thnx for posting NoraMarie. Made for ZWT4.
Easy to make and it was very good. I made 1/4 of the recipe and mixed it in a glass of ice. The next time I make this I'll use fresh basil and muddle it in the glass. Made for *ZWT4* 2008 game for the *Zingo Round* I also did the *Zingo Video Challenge* with the help of my son. On the video I said I used dill but it was basil, as the recipe called for. Count how many shakes DS gives with the Tabasco bottle. That little stinker. lol I'm on team *Tickling Tastebud Travellers*
I made this today for Zingo ZWT4. I liked it as is but it really needed to hot sauce to make it perfect! The red wine vinegar I used added a unique taste but I love things spicy. Thanks for an easy healthy drink! (I also used onion salt b/c I didnt have onion powder which I dont think took away from the drink).
I used regular tomato juice instead of the reduced sodium and I used regular sugar. I thought this came out great! I tried a glass full with dinner, which did not go so well. So I took the leftover juice with me to work the next day and I must say, that extra time in the fridge really did the trick when it comes to blending the flavors!! I had this as my "morning snack" and it gave me a nice, natural burst of energy. Thanks for posting!
I love tomato juice and it is my preferred drink over V8. I must say I think I would have liked this much more with regular tomato juice as I just do not seem to fancy the reduced sodium, even with the spices added, I found it a bit bland. I will try this with regular tomato juice though! Thanks NoraMarie. Reviewed during ZWT 4.
I had a stray can of tomato juice in the pantry. I don't even remember why I bought it as we prefer V8. I saw this recipe & decided to try it and am so glad I did. I whizzed the spices & one cup of the juice and then added the rest. It had a nice flavor and we finished the pitcher of chilled juice quickly. I left the Tabasco out & we added it to individual glasses as our taste for spicy varies. Made for ZWT4.
Delicious! Little Miss (DD) made this with a little help from me. The spices all blended together wonderfully. Thank you NoraMarie - *Made for Zaar World Tour 4*
