Why I Love This Recipe

"Cocktails in a soup bowl? Why not! This spicy tomato soup is laced with vodka poured at the table from a bottle which has been frozen into a block of ice. Dramatic and lots of fun as a starter course for a brunch or light supper."

Ingredients You'll Need

2-1/2 c. minced onion
2 c. minced celery
1-1/4 c. peeled, seeded and minced cucumber
8 cloves fresh garlic, minced
2 Tb. butter or margarine
4 (46 oz.) cans tomato juice
1-1/2 c. lemon juice
3 Tb. sugar
1/2 tsp. tabasco sauce
1/2 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1 bottle (fifth) vodka
1/2 c. green onion, sliced


Sauté onion, celery, cucumber and garlic in butter until soft. Add tomato juice, lemon juice, sugar, tabasco and worcestershire; simmer 7-8 minutes. Chill. Place vodka bottle in No.10 can filled with water; freeze until ice is solid. Remove can but keep vodka surrounded in ice and wrapped in a towel. To serve: ladle soup into serving bowls. Garnish with green onion. Ad 1 oz. jigger of vodka (from bottle in ice block) per serving of soup at the table.
