Loaded with flavor, this bold blend will seduce you with every sip. Add more Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, horseradish, and lemon juice for an even bolder experience.

To elevate the experience, try salting the rim of your glass and serving with a celery stick. You won’t even miss the vodka.

    Ok. It sounds great, and I want to try it. THE QUESTION IS:

    is all the dicing, mincing, chopping (and finely chopping) really necessary if it’s going into my high powered blender?

    • Elise Bauer

      Good question Ocean! Once I got a tomato stuck in a high powered blender, so now I do chop first. Easier to measure that way too. And with something like horseradish? It’s so powerful, you really don’t want to end up with big un-blended clump. But if your blender can blend anything to bits, go for it! I found pre-chopping to be helpful when I made this.

    Dearest Tess, I’m drinking this fabulous smoothie as I write. It’s AMAZING! So good. You nailed it girlfriend. It has just the right balance of everything. I even bought some horseradish root for this.
