  1. Mix the tomato juice, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce, celery salt and lemon juice in a large jug. Cover with clingfilm and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours. This will allow the flavours to blend together.
  2. When ready to serve, put some ice in 6 glasses and add the vodka, then the tomato juice. Stir the cocktail gently and add a celery stick, if you like.
