Now, I know this recipe has absolutely nothing to do with alcohol or Bloody Marys or anything enjoyable whatsoever. But it's my day off, it's a holiday weekend and I took many liberties with this one. So cut me some slack.

In an attempt to make the Jellied Tomato Refresher slightly more enticing, I adapted the ingredients just a bit. First of all, I ditched the tomato juice and used a zesty Bloody Mary mix. I also left out the beef bouillon cube and just spruced it up with some jazzy spices like chili powder and paprika. Oh--and instead of dehydrated green pepper flakes, I chopped some fresh green pepper and dropped it in right at the moment of final gel.
Did I add vodka? I'll never tell.
Yes, it is chunky. Yes, it tastes like a glass of curdled, cold tomato soup. No, there is absolutely no way to look classy while consuming this. Let's face it - it is basically a big ol' Bloody Mary jell-o shot.
But off I go, Jellied Tomato Refresher in hand, to be fabulous in my lounge chair.
