Bloody mary mix
 
I found it hard to make a big container of the stuff,
no matter how much I added, it kept being just
tomato juice. Finally I gave it a bunch more
Worcestershire and tabasco, threw in some onion
powder and cajun spice and la de da! Was pretty
darn good. Better be, I still have a bunch left.

I like it with V-8 juice, rather than tomato (more flavor).

Even without the vodka, this makes a good morning juice. Spicy is a waker-
upper!

The spicy V-8 is OK too but you can doctor up the regular V-8 just as
easy.

And HEY, three servings of veggies and one serving of vodka! That's FOUR
veggie servings counting the celery stalk. ;)

Sorry, but I must have missed when people told you that. I'd never using
anything but V-8. Often, for bloody marys, I use the Spicy Hot V-8, but at
the very least the regular.

I've heard the expression V-8 used quite a few times in the past few
weeks but can't fit it into any category which I know. Can you please
explain what it stands for? It sounds like a car engine capacity :-) I
have difficulty sometimes trying to interpret words in English even
though I am English born and bred ;-)

V-8 is a blended vegetable juice consisting primarily of tomato juice,
along with juices of carrots, celery, beets, parsley, lettuce, watercress,
spinach, and seasonings. It is made by Campbells and the name comes from
the number of vegetable juices it contains.

I told you V-8! I did, I did! Even the low-salt (since you said it was too
salty). Sheesh ;)

It's a brand name of tomato-based vegetable juice sold in the U.S.:

http://www.v8juice.com/default.aspx

It's good stuff; I've never had a home-made Bloody Mary, so I'm
not sure how that would taste. Last time I had one while out was
several years at Manresa Castle (Port Townsend, WA). I think the
bartender hit the bottom of their bottle of Bloody Mary mix -- it
was waaaaay over-seasoned and barely drinkable. Kind of spoiled
my taste for them...

Heh, on the way home I was sipping my (virgin) bloody mary
and chewing on my celery ... got a celery string I decided to
throw out the window. WHACK, damn those windows are
clean, I thought it was open. All the celery's fault.

V-8 is an actual name brand of vegetable juice mix.
It's a mix of 8 different juices.

Let's see, I do have a bottle in the 'frige right now. I like to use it
for marinades and recipes in general, It's also delicious as a quick
savory snack, and VERY nutritious:

Juices of:

Tomato
Carrots
Celery
Beets
Parsley
Lettuce
Watercress
Spinach

Also contains salt, Ascorbic acid (vitamin C as a preservative)
flavoring and citric acid.

It's made by Campbells soup company. :-)

V-8 juice is also FABULOUS served hot as a soup!

Cheers!

(SNIP)

Try simmering with fresh basil for about 40 min, strain and top with
very finely (like dust) shredded romano cheese.

Yummy!

Now, who would have thought of V8 soup. Maybe I'll
make vaux blood mary soup for lunch tomorrow.
