Curated slightly - moved the note on Clamato to the notes section instead of inline with the recipe. Changed the ingredient "salt and pepper" to "salt" and "black pepper".

Oh, and when you say "dash", do you mean "pinch"? 3 pinches of salt seems like quite a bit for a drink that's got 5 ounces of Clamato in it.

Dash was the term wikipedia used as a measurement, so I went with that... since I usually mean it to be "shakes" I would use three shakes. Perhaps pinch might explain it better.
I was taught to use 1-2-3-4-5: one (a generous one) ounce of vodka, two shakes of the hot sauce bottle, three shakes of salt and pepper, four shakes of the worcestershire sauce bottle, and 5 ounces of clamato.
