Servings 5 cups


  • 1 lb of tomatoes I used a variety from my garden
  • 1 whole green bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 whole red onion quartered
  • 1 serrano chili chopped (remove seeds if you do not want it too spicy)
  • 1/2 bunch flat leaf parsley roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp worchestershire sauce
  • generous pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 2 cups of water divided


  • To a medium sized saucepan, add 1 cup of water and all remaining ingredients. Bring to a simmer, and cook for about 30 minutes, covered.
  • Remove the cover, add in the remaining cup of water, give a good stir, then remove from the heat and let it cool for about 15 minutes.
  • Add the mixture to a blender, and blend until you think everything is nicely pureed.
  • Next you will need to strain the mixture. I use a chinois but if you do not have that then try and use a fine-mesh sieve, and place in a large mason jar. Discard or compost the remaining solids.
  • Chill the juice in the refrigerator, and when you are ready to serve, pour over some ice or a virgin bloody mary, or add a bit of vodka if you are making a cocktail.
  • The result is really, really good. I typically have to add stuff to my v8 drink to make it a bit spicy, but this combination was perfect.
