The following recipe appeared in the July 1999 issue of Esquire magazine on page 44. This is fair use (I believe) because they pulled it from another source anyway (with out the usual permission granted notice).

To a large pitcher (anything smaller is "worthless") add:
1 chunk of ice (the biggest that will fit)
1 pint of vodka
1 pint chilled tomato juice
1 tablespoon "Worcester" sauce
1 jigger fresh lime juice
Pinch celery salt
Pinch cayenne pepper
Pinch black pepper
Several drops of Tabasco

"Keep on stirring and taste it to see how it is doing. If you get it too powerful weaken with more tomato juice. If it lacks authority add more vodka."
