1 1/2 oz gin or vodka
3 oz tomato juice
1 dash lemon juice, freshly squeezed, or fresh frozen
1/2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
2-3 drops Tabasco Sauce
1 wedge lime for garnish
Shake first five ingredients with ice; strain into an old-fashioned glass over ice cubes.
Add the wedge of lime and serve.
Yield: One drink.
Combine all, except lovage stalks:
1 quart tomato juice
1/2 cup lime juice
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce (or to taste)
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups good-quality vodka or gin (we prefer Tanqueray, or, in England, Gordon’s non-export)
6 10-inch lovage stalks, leaves cut off
Combine all ingredients except lovage in a pitcher and stir well. Pour over ice in 6 tall glasses and garnish with the lovage stalks, which should be used as straws.
Yield: 6 drinks.
