  • 1 (4-ounce) package sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 (46-ounce) bottle vegetable juice*, divided
  • 32 ounces Clamato
  • 1/2 cup horseradish
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 2 teaspoons beef base**
  • 1 1/2 cups vodka, chilled


  1. Process sun-dried tomatoes and 1/3 cup vegetable juice in a processor until tomatoes are finely chopped and mixture is almost smooth. Transfer to a pitcher, and stir in remaining vegetable juice, Clamato, horseradish, fresh lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, celery salt, and beef base.** Chill thoroughly. Stir in chilled vodka.
  2. *If salt is a concern, use low-sodium vegetable juice and add beef base to taste.
  3. **Beef base is paste-type bouillon concentrate that adds a rich flavor to these drinks. We like Better Than Bouillon brand. Look for organic versions, too.
