109 HAIR OF THE DOG

Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Yields: 2–4 Servings

Comment:
This concoction of high-vitamin vegetables will replenish your body after a long night of drinking and celebrating. For those who can handle a little alcohol, Lafitte’s Sunrise is an alcoholic version of this tasty cocktail. Other than aspirin and a rod and reel, this drink is the most sought after item in a Louisiana fishing camp.

Ingredients:
2 (16-ounce) cans diced or crushed tomatoes
8 ounces V8® juice
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 tsp minced garlic
¾ tsp salt
3 tbsps red wine vinegar
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 (10½-ounce) can beef broth
salt and black pepper to taste
Louisiana hot sauce to taste
4 celery sticks for garnish
4 lime wedges for garnish

Method:
In a blender, purée tomatoes, V8®, bell peppers, onion, cucumbers, garlic, salt, vinegar and oil. Dilute mixture to drinking consistency by adding beef broth and additional V8® if necessary. Season to taste with salt, pepper and hot sauce. Chill and serve in highball glasses. Garnish with celery stick and lime wedge.

LAFITTE’S SUNRISE:
For those who don’t have a hangover, here is a vodka-laced version of this tasty cocktail. Separate prepared cocktail into servings and add 1 ounce high-quality vodka to each. Blend well in a martini shaker and serve in a highball glass garnished with spicy grilled jumbo shrimp.
