We like to add a shot of vodka, but for those who might not want such a strong drink, this is delicious “virgin” style, without the alcohol. Add the adobo sauce gradually and taste the tomato juice as you season to see how zingy you want it. (Chiles in adobo sauce may stain your cutting board; freeze extra ones in zip-top bags.)
Find this and other beverages in our Drinks and Entertaining Guide.
Fresh tomato variation: In summer, instead of the tomato juice, use 4 pounds fresh ripe tomatoes. Core and seed the tomatoes and purée them in a blender with 1/4 cup cold water until smooth. (If you want, strain the skins, but we like their added texture.)
