  • 250 ml spicy tomato juice
  • 2 shot of vodka
  • 1 lemon, freshly squeezed
  • 8 drops of tabasco sauce
  • 8 drops of Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp dried red chilli flakes
  • ½ tsp celery salt
  • A pinch of cracked black pepper
  • Ice
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp red chilli flakes
  • ¼ tsp celery salt
  • 2 sticks of celery
  • 2 small cherry tomato
  • 2 cornichon
  • 2 green olive
  • 2 slice of streaky bacon see instructions on how to cook the bacon
  • 2 caperberry
  • 1 sweet red chilli pepper (optional)
  • Lemon slices and lime wedges


  • Add ice to a large jug then pour in the vodka and tomato juice and mix well.
    Pour in lemon juice, tabasco sauce,  Worcestershire sauce, the smoked paprika, red chilli flakes, celery salt and the black pepper.
  • Stir well.
  • Pour into two high ball glasses then add more ice.
  • Top with the garnishes and serve immediately.
  • To make crispy bacon garnish, heat the oven to 300 degrees C, line a baking tray with parchment paper.
    Place the bacon on the paper and place the tray on the middle shelf. Bake for 10 minutes then turn the bacon and bake for another 5 minutes.
    The bacon is done when it's crispy. Remove bacon from the tray then place on kitchen paper to drain off any fat, leave to cool.
  • To make the salt rim, pour the celery salt, chilli flakes and sea salt onto a small plate.
    Rub the juicy side of a lemon wedge along the lip of the glasses.
    Roll the outer edge of the glass in celery salt until fully coated.

  • Make it Vegetarian, skip the bacon and use a vegetarian Worcestershire sauce. You could make aubergine bacon if you want but this drink is perfect without the bacon too. 
  • Chill the vodka before you make this, I keep my vodka in the freezer so it's nice and cold.
