This one surprised the heck out of me. It really does make a nice tomato juice cocktail. For our taste preference, I'll probably cut back a little on the sugar the next time, just a bit sweet for us. I always have tomato paste on hand, so I doubt that I'll buy V-8 again, as this was a pretty good substitute. We like spicy tomato juice, so today I added some Tabasco and a sprinkle of celery salt, and we had something equivalent to Spicy V-8 Juice Cocktail (just add vodka for a Bloody Mary). It's tasty, super easy to make, and cost-effective. For us, this one's a keeper.

Quick and easy, and a great way to make tomato juice when you don't have any of the "real" thing on hand! I don't tend to keep tomato juice in the pantry, but always have tomato paste. This was very flavorful, and I'm looking forward to experimenting with different brands of tomato paste, including those with different herbs and seasonings added.

I don't even like tomato juice, but I found this delicious when I made it today.
