How to Make It
Bring tomato juice and next 6 ingredients to a boil in a large saucepan; reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Pour tomato juice mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a large mixing bowl, discarding solids.
Sprinkle unflavored gelatin over 1/2 cup cold water; let stand 1 minute. Stir softened gelatin mixture into tomato juice mixture, stirring until gelatin dissolves.
Prepare raspberry-flavored gelatin according to package directions; do not chill. Add to tomato juice mixture, stirring until combined. Pour mixture into 10 (6-ounce) punch cups; chill 8 hours or until firm. Garnish, if desired. Serve with Chicken or Shrimp Salad.
