Sounds odd, but trust me, it is AWESOME!! My grandfather used to drink this all the time, and when I was little, he would always let me have a sip. Still love it to this day!! Hey, I figure if you're gonna drink beer, might as well sneak in one or two of those "Five-A-Day"!!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (12 ounce) can beer (light or regular)
  • 14 cup tomato juice
  • 1 dash salt and pepper
  • liquid red pepper sauce (optional)
  • green onion, for stirrers (optional)


  1. Pour beer into glass, then tomato juice (I like frosted mugs).
  2. Add salt and pepper, and serve with green onion for stirrer.

Love this!! I did try lime salt and found it was also good instead of the salt and pepper. I also used celery for the stirrer. I'm a big fan of bloody mary's and this is another drink to add to my list.

I love red beer:) I use either plain tomato juice or one of the V8 variations, a sprinkle of lemon pepper or Morton's Nature's Seasoning. Haven't made it with hot sauce yet. I tend to drink a few less drinks if I have this because the tomato juice tends to be a bit filling:)

We call these red beers, and they are a staple at our local pub. Try a little Montreal Steak Seasoning instead of plain salt and pepper, if you want a bit more kick.
