1 can (14 oz/398 mL) diced tomatoes
½ cup (125 mL) vodka or aquavit
½ cup (125 mL) sugar
1 tsp (5 mL) Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp (5 mL) your favourite hot sauce
½ cup (125 mL) lemon juice, freshly squeezed
¼ tsp (1 mL) salt
48 fresh local oysters
1. In your blender or food processor, purée the tomatoes, vodka, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, lemon juice, and salt.
2. Pour into a shallow dish and place in your freezer. Every 30 minutes or so, stir and scrape the mixture with a fork until it’s frozen and granular. It’s best to make the ice the day before you’d like to serve it.
3. Cover with plastic wrap and keep frozen.
4. When your friends arrive, shuck away. Top each oyster with a spoonful of the Bloody Mary ice. Serve and share!
