This recipe was one of LeggyPeggy’s recipes and her adaptation from the Joy of Cooking; Tomato and Cucumber Juice. I in turn have modified it to my own personal taste. I added some clam juice, hot sauce and a twist of lemon…. This drink is kind of like a “Bloody Mary” however, without Vodka. It is a great cold and frosty drink on a hot summers day.
