A cold soup is always a refreshing first course on a hot day; this one -- a refreshing cross between gazpacho and a Bloody Mary -- doesn't require any time on the stove at all.

  • Strain through a sieve into a large bowl to remove skins and seeds.

  • Add lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to taste, Tabasco, horseradish, and vodka, if desired. Cover and chill at least 2 hours, or overnight. Taste before serving; adjust seasonings if necessary. The amount of lime juice needed will depend on the acidity of the tomatoes.

  • Ladle into soup bowls, and place about 1/4 cup of crabmeat in the center. Grate additional fresh horseradish over surface of soup, if desired, and serve immediately.

I didn't know bloody Marys had so many veggies, this one looks more like gazpacho with vodka
