Question of the Evening

If you take a can of V8, add vodka and spices and turn it into a Bloody Mary does it still count as two servings of vegetables?

Answer: Drink it and you won't really care too much either way.

Apparently according to Wikipedia, such a concoction is called an Bloody Eight or an Eight Ball. Mind you Eight Ball sounds like you're doing illegal narcotics - "Dude, want an Eight Ball?", so we shall remain refined and stick to calling it a Bloody Mary.

What you'll need (per serving):
1 glass to put the following in, in order -
1.5 oz (1 jigger) Vodka, chilled (Stolichnaya is what I've got on hand and its good).
1 can V-8, chilled.
2 twists of black pepper grinded from the pepper grinder.
1 tsp Worcestershire (Lea & Perrins, of course accept no substitutes).
1 squirt lemon juice.
3 drops of Frank's RedHot or Tabasco sauce.

Mix drink, unwind and contemplate the remains of the day as you consume the drink and feel virtuous that you just drank 2 servings of vegetables with your after-dinner cocktail.

And if you take a can of V-8 and shoot it with a .30-06 at 100M...

MUCH more fun!
