  1. In a jug, mix together the tomato, orange and lime juice with the grenadine, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, ½ tsp salt and pepper. Check the seasoning - you are looking for a nice balance of fire to pep you up, saltiness to season the rest of the ingredients you'll be adding, a refreshing citrus kick from the orange and lime, and enough sweetness from the grenadine to balance the rest of the flavours. Chill in the fridge for at least 30 mins.

  2. Cut the cucumber in half lengthways and scoop out the seeds with a small spoon. Finely dice the flesh into 4-5mm cubes. Dice the scallops and avocado into similar sizes and mix everything into the chilled tomato juice along with the prawns and chopped spring onions. Serve in small glasses, drizzled with the Tequila, scattered with coriander, with crackers or buttered bread on the side.

  3. Choosing tequila Tequila is the spirit made from the blue agave plant, which grows in the central highlands of Mexico. It is usually sold at 38-40 proof and is the key ingredient of Margarita cocktails 'White' or 'Silver' is the young spirit, best for cocktails. Reposado, aged for several months in oak barrels, is smoother. Anejo is the oldest category, to be sipped like whisky.
