Tomato Cocktail (Non-Alcoholic Pitcher Drink)

The Tomato Cocktail has no alcohol and, as a friend put it, is really an excuse to drink vinegar. Yes, there's no alcohol in red wine vinegar, but it is mighty tasty. Vinegar gives a sour twist to what would seem like a Virgin Bloody Mary, but without any of the heat of Tabasco in a Bloody Mary. This is actually a pretty thirst quenching cocktail that would be fun to serve at a picnic.
  • 16 oz. tomato juice
  • 1 oz. red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. basil
  • 1/2 tsp. ground pepper
  • 1 whole cucumber peeled and pureed
  • 4 lime wedges
Combine all ingredients except lime wedges in a glass pitcher and stir well. Chill and serve over ice cubes in highball glasses garnished with lime wedges.
