Tips

Shopping Tip: Capers are dried and pickled small flower buds from a shrub native to the Mediterranean. Caperberries are the more mature fruit produced by the shrub. They are about the size of an olive, starchier than the smaller caper and usually sold with the stem still attached. They typically used as a drink garnish, but can also be served as an appetizer--like olives. Look for them in well-stocked supermarkets near olives and pickles or find them online at tienda.com.

This is a delicious drink! This is really great I make it all the time but I never used jalapenos before. In addition to removing the seeds and stem the membrane which is actually the hottest part should be removed. I think the last reviewer did not remove the seeds from the pepper. This does make a big difference. If you find the tomato juice is too thick to your liking just add a little water. Very simple. I always feel so energized when I have this drink. Pros: Fresh and energizing Cons: None Read More
