Author Notes

The Red Eye - tomato juice, vodka and beer. I've jazzed this one up to make it extra spicy. Follow the cube part of the recipe to a T, but if you can't handle the heat, cut back on the hot sauce. —inpatskitchen

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining. My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!

Thanks katylua...let me know if you try it...it's not for the faint hearted!

PS One of these days I'm going to post my recipe for homemade tomato juice. I think it might work well for this recipe. It's sweeter and less complex in flavor than V8, but still might create a good version.

Oh please do... I've got 16 tomato plants in the garden and would love the recipe for later this summer...tomato juice for anything bloody is right up MY alley!!

Thanks....spicy enough for me but Tom had to bring the heat down (he'd rather have vodka and tomato juice naked!)
