Strange as it may sound, the most important aspect of this drink is that the glasses’ rim must be coated with salt! The salted rim gives an amazing feeling while sipping this drink. Do not forget to garnish it with lemon slices.

Tomatoes, of course, are rich in folic acid and vitamins A and C, making this as healthy as it is tasty – a range combination of characteristics! Tabasco and Worcestershire sauces add zing to this drink, which is healthier and tastier than aerated drinks that provide nothing but calories.
