This is a recipe my husband found and adapted. It is supposed to be good for clearing your sinuses, but we love it as a warm winter treat. Use any hot sauce you like; we have found the fruitier ones taste best. This also makes a great Bloody Mary mix. Serve in mugs, with a stick of celery.

I love this - it's like a virgin Bloody Mary but hot so it's soothing for a sore throat or just warm and comforting on a cold day. A few hints: 1) Tomato juice is extremely high in sodium so use celery seed rather than celery salt. 2) No need to dirty a blender and saucepan just pour low-sodium tomato (or vegetable) juice in a cup add other ingredients to taste and pop it in the microwave until it gets hot. 3) If you like Indian food try adding a little rasam powder - it's delicious.
