  • 1 can (46 fl. oz.) good-quality tomato juice
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 3 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbs. prepared horseradish
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. hot-pepper sauce, such as Tabasco
  • 1 1/2 tsp. celery salt
  • Ice cubes as needed
  • 3/4 to 1 cup vodka
  • 6 to 8 celery stalks, leaves attached
  • 6 to 8 lemon slices (optional)


In a large pitcher, stir together the tomato and orange juices, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, lemon juice, hot-pepper sauce and celery salt. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled.

To serve, fill large glasses with ice cubes. Pour 1 shot (1 to 1 1/2 fl. oz.) vodka over the ice in each glass. Add 3/4 to 1 cup of the tomato juice mixture. Use a celery stalk to stir each beverage, leaving it in the glass as a garnish. Garnish the rim of each glass with a lemon slice.
