Print Recipe


  • 24 ounces V8 Vegetable juice blend I used V8 low sodium...there is plenty of salt in this drink already :
  • 4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoon tabasco sauce
  • 2 teaspoons celery salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt I used Lowry's
  • 3 beef bouillon cubes
  • 1/2 cup good vodka to taste I like Titos...inexpensive and quite good


  • Mix all of the ingredients except for the vodka together in a pot and heat on the stovetop on low/medium-low heat
  • Cook until the bouillon cubes have fully dissolved, stirring occasionally
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Add a shot of vodka to each glass, and pour V8 mixture over the vodka.
  • Stir. Garnish as desired.
