    Needs Vodka

    I have made this many times, lemon or lime, make as a "clam shot" in a martini glass too. Use any seafood you like! Delish! Just remember to use the vodka

    Not to my taste, but fixable.

    I have been making a recipe similar to this for a number of years, however, with several additions. Use Clamato or add clam juice to the V8 juice. Add avocado and chopped celery as well. It can also be made with baby clams, abalone, octopus or calamari. I prefer to mix the baby clams and shrimp though I use larger shrimp in mine (31 to 40/lb.) Crab meat goes well with it also. I prefer Dungeness to other varieties if I can get it fresh. Try it. You'll like it!!!
