This drink made a nice and spicy "eye-opener" for a breakfast drink. I used all of the ingredients, with a light hand, and got a very refreshing, healthful drink. I actually used 2 dashes of Tabasco, and 1/2 fresh lime. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

This was great! I only added a dash each of the Worcestershire and celery salt, because canned tomato juice is so salty already. Then I went heavy on the lime juice, and added a couple of drops of hot sauce. It was perfect.

A wonderful designated driver beverage. I used V8 vegetable juice and lemon juice instead of lime. Loved this drink very refreshing and good any time. For pristine ice cubes I boiled the water first, cooled it and then froze. You can use this method and add a mint leaf, olive, cherry, or lemon or orange zest for other beverages. I also freeze leftover coffee and tea for drinks.

Very refreshing and tasty. I did not have hot sauce or lime, so substituted cayenne and lemon as suggested by other reviewers. I also did not use the pickle spear, just a couple of celery stalks.

A delicious eye-opening mid morning "cocktail"! I used tomato cocktail, which is fairly spicy, so I used a light hand with the additions. I didn't have any limes - but I did have lemons. I'm not fussy on rimmers & I skipped the pickle. Thanx Sharon!

Excellent! Healthful, invigorating and just plain tasty. I didn't use the pickle spear (yuck, I hate pickles!) and had to use lemon juice in a pinch in lieu of the lime but this turned out great just the same. I really like the versatility of this recipe, too- you can really adjust the quanities of everything to-taste. I found that it was best for me to be a bit heavy-handed on all the ingredients. Like ~*~Ang11002~*~, I didn't have celery salt on-hand, just celery seed. Well, since all celery salt is is a mix of salt and celery seed, I just went ahead and added the seed. I definitely recommend adding the celery salt (well, in my case celery seed), though- it gives this a great tangy celery flavor that just made this for me. Thanks for a great one, Sharon. I may have to start buying tomato juice more often just so I can drink these. A delicious way to get some veggies in your diet!

MMMM! I made this tonight except I only had celery seed, not celery salt like I thought so had to omit that. Used the hot sauce & worcestershire sauce with a heavy hand and was great! Thanks Sharon123 for a yummy, easy late night drink!
