1 litre tomato juice
Juice from one lime

Good shake of Worcestershire sauce
Pinch of salt
Couple of twists of black pepper

Optional – teaspoon of freshly grated horseradish or teaspoon of horseradish cream
It’s not hard is it? Whack it all in a jug and give it a good stir with the sticky bit of a wooden spoon!
Pour into glasses and garnish with a sprig of freshly picked mint (ours is still going strong in the herb garden despite the recent snow and icy temperatures!
Enjoy your Christmas morn tipple! Always drink responsibly!
