This mocktail has all the benefits of the Bloody Mary and none of its alcohol. It’s a heady mix of spices and sauces, with tomato juice binding the flavours together.
120 ml tomato juice
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
2-3 drops tabasco sauce
Pepper to taste
Pour all the ingredients in a shaker or a glass and stir. Rub a lemon wedge along the rim of a glass. Spread some salt on a plate and place the glass upside down on the plate. Dust off excess salt. Now, you can transfer the contents in this salt rimmed glass. Don’t forget to add some ice!

3 oz mango juice
