INGREDIENTS

I was given this recipe by a restaurant owner. It took several years to get the ingredients list out of him. He made it from scratch every week. He made them strong and spicy.

I only use Clamato juice, never tomato juice.  Start by filling a carafe or pitcher with the amount you think you need.  I fill it about 2/3 full and start mixing in ingredients.

When mixing use your own ratios baed on how spicy you want.  I never really measure the ingredients, I just go by feel.

Add ice cubes to the glass.  Vodka about 1/3 way up.  I use less expensive vodka as the mix masks any difference in vodka quality.  Your choice.
