Caribbean Tomato Juice Cocktail

"Quick to make and very refreshing on a hot day. This has been adapted from Rita G. Springer's 'Caribbean Cookbook'. I never add the sugar. Obviously, you could add a shot of vodka to make it rather more daring."

    This was great to make and very yummy, tasted a lot like a bloody mary. Next time I will try it with the vodka.

    I made this for PAC 2010. I added 1 oz vodka to this to make it a cocktail. Delish.

    Very nice. It's nice not to have to discard the tomato juice that canned tomatoes are packed in.

    What a nice tomato drink to start a meal. We have Clamato juice here but I can't drink it because of MSG;... now I can make my own. I think I will be having a Ceasar real soon. Thanks for posting this one. I made it for ZWT5. Rita
