Dash of Worcestershire sauce
Dash of Tabasco sauce
4 oz. spicey V8 juice

Ice a highball glass; combine all the ingredients in a shaker filled with ice; shake vigorously; strain into the chilled highball glass; dust with freshly ground pepper to taste, and garnish with a lemon wheel and thin slice of celery.
