2 tablespoons Taste #5 Bomba! XXX tomato paste
1 teaspoon horseradish, fresh grated or jarred prepared
1 teaspoon sriracha (or to taste)
¼ teaspoon of chili powder
¼ teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
Pinch of salt
½ cup vodka
- Blend all ingredients except for the vodka in a blender until smooth.
- Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a large measuring cup, pressing on and then discarding solids.
Add vodka and give a good stir.
- Pour into popsicle molds. Freeze 30 minutes. Insert sticks, then freeze until firm, overnight or about 24 hours
NOTE: You will especially want to use Taste #5 Bomba! XXX tomato paste if you're using fresh tomatoes instead of tomato juice. Bomba's triple concentrated paste will give you that V8 deep tomato-vegetable depth of flavor.
