Pickle juice is the secret weapon here, delivering briny tartness to make this drink lip-smackingly delicious. We’ve tried pickled okra juice and dill pickle juice—both work well. Bread and butter pickle juice would add a hint of sweetness. The pickle and lemon juice also help thin out the thick tomato juice, so the drink is all the more sippable. For a vegan version, use vegan Worcestershire sauce.
1/2 cup low-sodium tomato juice
1 tablespoon dill or okra pickle juice
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon hot sauce (such as Cholula)
