Serves one. Increase ingredients to suit participants.
500mls Tomato juice (not V8, Clamato or any other variety)
10mls Beef blood
1 beef stock cube
Black pepper (freshly ground)
Worcestershire sauce (or dark soy, if push comes to shove)
1 tblsp ginger (freshly grated)
1 tblsp vinegar (balsamic is best)
1 Cucumber (peeled and deseeded)
1 tblsp horseradish (freshly grated)
1 teaspoon English Mustard powder (optional)
Chop the cucumber into cubes and place in a freezer or refrigerator icebox until frozen.
Mix the water (room temp) and blood (slowly to avoid clotting) then add Worcestershire sauce and vinegar and pour the liquid over the celery salt, stock cube, horseradish, ginger, black pepper and mustard powder, whilst constantly stirring.
Stir well and add slowly, while still stirring, to the tomato juice.
Add the vodka and frozen cucumber (the frozen cucumber obviates the need for ice cubes). Stir well.
Add garnish (sprigs of parsley, celery stalks and/or whatever else tickles your palate).
